Lake Forest, IL Swimming Pool with Massive Thermal Shelf

At one time, the sun shelf, (also referred to as a thermal shelf, tanning ledge, or Baja ledge) was only encountered at exotic tropical resorts. Travelers that were able to put a chaise lounge right in the water discovered the ultimate way to soak up the tropical sun. This feature is prominently displayed in this residential swimming pool in Lake Forest, IL. The swimming pool measures 22’0″ x 48’0″, and has a sun shelf that extends 8’0″ into the swimming pool. This feature, while out of the water, is the hidden gem in this project. Indiana Limestone coping abuts the Limestone deck with brick inlays. An automatic pool safety cover is completely hidden utilizing a custom walk-on, vanishing lid system with a hidden leading edge design. It is a simple, traditional design, but provides the perfect recreation space for lounging adults and frolicking kids alike.
