Dad Does This When They Couldn’t Afford A Swimming Pool…

A backyard pool can be the ultimate source of endless summertime fun. It can also be really, really expensive. In-ground pools can cost thousands, and above-ground pools often feel like a cheap half measure.

José Adimilson Franco knew all of this but he was still determined to make his dream of having a pool for his family come true. So he came up with a brilliant compromise.

Franco started with an upright, above-ground pool.

Next, he built a frame around the pool itself.

He filled in the frame completely, and even included a staircase!

It’s the perfect compromise between an above-ground pool and a traditional model.

Something tells me this summer is going to be the best one yet!

I don’t know about you, but I’m already planning my trip to the home improvement store to make this happen. Think of the possibilities!
