IMAGINE YOUR SUN SHELF:

Have you heard of a sun shelf deck for your pool?  Close your eyes and imagine lounging under the sun.  You're perfectly comfortable despite the Florida heat because you are partially submerged in the refreshing shallows of your own crystal clear pool.  Perhaps you've elected to open the strategically placed sunbrella offering shade and reprieve from the afternoon rays.  You listen to the gentle lapping of the pristine water surrounding you.  Maybe your spouse or dear friend is in the chair next to you, offering companionship and sharing stories.  Perhaps your children are splashing around at the other end of the pool - satisfied that you are in there with them.  You may be lost in your favorite book or completely present in your surroundings.  Whatever your external circumstances, a sun shelf deck is THE way to summer in Florida.

WHAT IS A SUN SHELF:

I'm not one to jump on board with every passing trend, however, the sun shelf is one swimming pool development that has stood the test of time with increasing popularity.  Once exclusive only to high-end hotels and resorts, they are now commonly custom-made for the homeowner's backyard.  The sun shelf has acquired many titles including tanning shelf, tanning ledge, or Baja shelf.  No matter what name you use, the space is a flat, shallow area in your pool.  We can adapt them to your personal needs and include a space for lounge chairs, built in tables, and a mount for an umbrella.   A sun shelf differs from a "beach entry" to your pool in that it takes up less space and it can be easily incorporated into an array of pool designs and is perfect if you are tight on space.
