NEW BRUNSWICK CANADA POOL ENCLOSURES

Build a pool enclosure in northeastern Canada in the middle of winter?  Yes.  Below are photos of a conservatory-style double-faceted swim-spa / hot tub enclosure.  The owners wanted an enclosure that would accent their house architecturally, from the custom beige walls, bronze roof, beige glass grids, combination high performance self-cleaning glass and polycarbonate roof, custom 18 foot wide 3-panel multi-sliding glass door, cultured stone base-wall and have it accessible via a covered walkway attached to the house.  The logical attachment area was under the deck since this area had a door to the house, P.E.I glassed in the area under the deck as well. The enclosure will have in-floor radiant heat augmented with a heat-pump, a dehumidifier, 60" ceiling fan, and a raised deck on one end around the swim spa and hot tub.  Note...the next day after the tent was taken down the enclosure endured the blizzard of 2013.  The enclosure was designed to meet local building codes for 50 psf roof live load and 90 mph wind loads.
