Adding a Swimming Pool to Your Home? Things You Should Know

by Shea Homes Arizona on May 18, 2018

Backyard Swimming PoolHave fun in the sun and stay cool by the pool! With that lovely extended spring behind us and the infamous Arizona summer on its way, Valley residents are pulling out their swimsuits and stocking up on sunscreen. Shea Homes® homeowners in communities like Recker Pointe and Ambition at Eastmark (and soon, 24 North) love the resort feel of their community pools, where neighbors can meet, play and barbecue together.

Many of our communities also offer the option of adding a swimming pool in the back yard. We chatted with Jim Pinson from Shasta Pools, Shea’s trusted resource for everything aquatic, to get the scoop on everything from construction to safety and maintenance. Shasta has been family-owned since 1966 and has been Arizona’s premier pool builder for decades.

While some homebuyers wait to build their pool until after closing, there are a few reasons to consider going for it right out of the gate.

Awesomefest - April 13 and 14 at EastmarkPeer ahead in your calendar.

Do you see that? The luminous sheen over next Friday and Saturday? The glowing lights, the live music, the smell of roasted pecans mingling with the tantalizing smells of a dozen food trucks? It can only be one thing…

AWESOMEFEST! And this year, Eastmarks’ annual bash has too much awesome for just one night, so for the first time ever the festivities will overflow into TWO nights of fun! (April 13 is for residents only and April 14 is open to the public.)

Things kick off on the April 13 with AwesomeEve, a residents-only shindig for the young and young at heart alike. Kids will get the chance to dance and play with the Be Kind Crew, a local group of young leaders who promote kindness through personal expression, spoken word poetry, and urban dance. Together they’ll create a routine that the kids will perform on Saturday night, right in the heart of AwesomeFest! Meanwhile, as dusk paints the Superstitions in pale zinfandel light, adults will be settling around farmhouse tables for a family-style, chef-prepared dinner. Enjoy farm-fresh produce from Erich Shultz of Steadfast Farms, specialty local wines and craft beers, as well as live music and stimulating conversation as the stars come out to look on with envy.
