We are debating what to do with our entertaining areas. The alfresco that is part of the home is quite small. Great for a small group gathering.
We have just installed a pool in the yard.
So my question is... would you extend the alfresco, or would you include a large entertaining area inside of the pool fence.
When kids are in the pool at other peoples homes, I always sit and supervise the whole time and I seem to be the only one that does it. For some reasons our friends think their kids are safe by themselves.
I want to put our "summer" entertaining area inside of the pool. I would like to have a pavillion or covered areas installed for sitting and eating and socialising and watching the kids.
Do you think this is a good idea or should we extend our alfresco area? Note we wont have full view of the pool from this point, so someone would need to sit inside the pool area and supervise.
What would you do?
