An original project !

There are people who have good ideas and who like challenges. Stefan Beese, an architect from New Orleans in the United States, is one of them.

He wanted a contemporary swimming-pool with a modern style in his garden, without buying an existing swimming-pool model.

He really wanted to build a swimming-pool different from the others, so our architect found a way to build a swimming-pool with a truck trailer !

Come discover his project image by image !

First step
Our architect bought an old truck trailer and had a hole dug in the ground, but not as deep as we might think.

Second step

It was then necessary to buy a tarp large enough to cover the bottom of the truck trailer. Seeing Stefan's smile, everything is going well !

Third step

It was necessary to cover the edge of the pool to forget that it was actually a truck trailer. It's beginning to look like a swimming-pool !

Fourth step

Now the edges of the pool are covered. The wood has been painted and there is even a space that can be used as a deck. The pool is 1.50m deep and 6.7m long by 2.1m wide. Before installing the pool liner, Stefan applied an anticorrosive paint, the same used for a roof or cement. He also installed insulating panels for the outline of the swimming-pool.

A place to sit

The most beautiful thing in all that, is that there is a small stair to sit down; very practical with young children.


The filter, lights and other components of the pool, are the same as for a standard pool.

Engine installation

Stefan had the brilliant idea of hiding the pool filter and the other hoses to clean it, behind a wooden panel that surrounds the pool.

An original project !

What do you think of this original project ? This unique swimming pool costs about $ 7,000. We imagine that the truck trailer, the wood, the pool liner and the filter have made this project quite expensive but we must admit that this pool is unique, right ?

Would you like to have a swimming pool like this ? Feel free to leave me your impressions.
