Knowledge, experience and general know-how

Clients in Buckinghamshire talk about the building of their new pool house

Mr & Mrs S from Buckinghamshire:
“We chose Origin because they seemed to be the only pool company that did the whole project from beginning to end – without depending on a bevy of outside suppliers, of varying skill degrees, to make it all happen.

In the early stages, when we were considering the inclusion of this major step, we were assured by the Origin representative’s knowledge, experience and general know-how. We had a good idea of where the pool house should be sited, and Origin’s designers agreed. Nestling in some beautiful trees with stunning views of our home was a natural.

We chose Origin’s Barn style as the basis of our pool house. This seemed like a good plan since we live in the country, and the look would blend perfectly with our surroundings.

Sketches, visuals and plans were accepted and the work began. As you could probably guess, digging out an area for a pool involves a great deal of earth movement, but this was done with the minimum of disruption and, although Origin would have happily disposed of the resulting mountain, we decided to use it to our advantage – and now a few months later we have a little grass covered hill which has completed our garden!

Origin’s team could not have done enough to help. They were always friendly, and patient–even when I had a few changes of mind about tiles and colours. Now the finished building matches our home, and adds enormously to the look of our gardens. And that’s before you get inside, and appreciate the sheer joy of it. Swimming every day is good for you – and just relaxing there, early evening, with your family is… well, it doesn’t get much better.

We were happy with the professionalism, the service, and the result. Thanks Origin.”
