The March issue of the Baltimore publication, Urbanite, featured a man's wild vision to turn his garage into a sanctuary. "It was either going to be a pool or a secret grotto. I'm maximizing my backyard space," the owner, Paul, said of his Baltimore city garage...


Pool Under Construction

After one year, a slew of naysayers, and multiple roadblocks, Paul accomplished his goal. Once a one-car garage, it now houses a small lap pool complete with a wood deck. The garage roof was torn off and replaced with a Plexiglas roof on wheels so it would be retractable. The pool itself was a kit from an online DIY pool supplier, and the garage is now equipped with plumbing and electric.
