If you have DIY projects on your mind these days, you’re not alone. It’s gardening season, after all. We’re collectively looking for ways to make home more comfortable for the long haul. Both indoor and outdoor spaces are important considerations. Maybe you’re even considering adding a pool? I’m not sure our level of commitment can match what you’re about to see, though.
This guy is leading the way – and he’s doing it ALL by hand. Well, his hands and some basic hand tools. I never, ever would have guessed that a machete, clay pots and some bamboo stalks could create something so inspiring and incredible. This pool and pool house are amazing.
As if the pool itself weren’t exciting enough, he adds a pool house, steps, flickering lighting, wall decor and lovely landscaping with the same primitive tools and back-breaking effort. He does all of it so smoothly that you wonder if it’s just a thing that comes naturally to people that aren’t you? By the end it looks like a totally normal and reasonable thing anyone could do to their backyard.
After watching that, I’m not sure whether I’m ready to go find a machete and a bucket or take an ibuprofen and a nap. But either way I have a whole new perspective on backyard improvements now!
