Long Jetty Renovation Pool & Backyard Reveal

It’s been months of hard work, but the time has finally come. We can now say we’re finished!

You could say we designed the house from the pool out… The pool concrete was the first thing to be poured, so we’ve certainly been eagerly anticipating this day! Outdoor living and entertaining is so important to us, and we can honestly say we’ve created a retreat we would be more than happy to spend our days in – all year round!
