One of my favorite clients came to me with an idea that everyone had told him was crazy, but we thought was just crazy enough to work. He wanted the combination of everything beachfront living had to offer, but also wanted his own lap pool, all in the comfort of a modest lot on the sand. Our solution? put the pool on the roof.
