If you want to build a swimming pool without wasting too much money, consider building a container pool. A swimming pool around a home makes a great and accessible recreation venue and an investment that makes the home more valuable. Two types of swimming pool are available: above-ground and in-ground. Above-ground swimming pool is cheaper to buy; however, as the pool structure is rarely permanent, it is often considered not very valuable and not as exciting as in-ground swimming pool. If you want to stay on budget when constructing your swimming pool, you should consider building a container pool or a pool that is made from garbage container. Sounds nasty, doesn’t it? If you build the pool correctly, you can truly make a grand swimming pool with this cheap material.
Meet Stefan Beese, a creative architect who has successfully built a high-class swimming pool from unused dumpsters. Looking at the finished model, you will hardly believe that the pool is made from garbage dumpsters. Stefan has successfully constructed and cosmeticized the pool to make it look and feel exclusive. The interior of the dumpster wall is painted with aqua color typical of most in-ground pool. The exterior wall of the dumpster is effectively concealed behind wooden walls that Stefan builds to provide support to the pool and to hide the possibly unsightly exterior of the dumpster. Wooden frames are also used for the pool’s decking and stairs. Also hidden behind the wooden walls is limestone base that supports the steel dumpster and prevent the soil underneath it from being polluted. Theoretically, the pool appears to be an above-ground swimming pool, but its elegance is comparable to a luxury in-ground swimming pool.
Can you build the same swimming pool around your home? Absolutely yes. Stefan is happy to share his tips about how to build the swimming pool with you. Basically, you need to get a Dumpster Dive De Luxe that has been cleaned, to protect the dumpster’s body with anti-corrosion paint, to add limestone underneath the box, to add high-density foam for toe-padding and, and to add pool liner. You can then build the wooden structure that surrounds the pool. The finished swimming pool will look so elegant and luxurious that no one will notice that it is actually made from dumpsters. If you want to try this green idea, you can start now as all required materials to make a container pool are easy to find.
