Here are some pictures of a bar I put at our pool. I did all the work in the evenings and week ends. Had contractors frame the roof and put the shingles on.

Bar looks good. I've never seen a plain concrete deck around a pool though. I think a concrete overlay would make that place look like a paradise.

Looks like colored concrete set in a sono tube with a concrete table top. How did you do that? I like it.

Your right,it's sonatube with a slab on top. The footers where in with rebar sticking out. Put the sonatube on the footers with rebar inside. Rented 2 -14 foot aluminum junior beams and 6 reshore adjustable bases. Some 4x4's, 2x4's, plywood and a half day to form it up. The top and the sonatubes where pour at the same time. The top has #4 rebar about 8-10 inches O.C. each way. Took about a 1 1/2 yards of concrete I think. Acid stained the concrete and sealed it. Just got done resealing it this weekend.

The foundation for the building and the bar was in. I started the beginning of June with the building

A majority of the pools in this area just have plain concrete around them

the sono tube counter is a great idea. you could even get even more detailed if you wanted and stamp the top....but its a little too late now

What kind of wood did you use for the exposed beams and tongue and groove ceiling?

If you stamp the concrete it would have been hard to clean it up, spilled drinks or food.

The beams are 4 inch by 6 inch yellow pine, I got them from a saw mill in Indiana. I had them planed so they would be equal in dimensions. The roof decking is 2x6 V-grooved, tongue and grooved # 2 yellow pine

That is one awesome job you did. May I ask where you obtained the truss metal brackets? Did you have them fabricated locally or did you order them from a manufacturer?

Looks great....except for the pink siding. Outside of that, looks like a little chunk of heaven.

I really like the uniqueness of the materials and design. I love the glass blocks in a bar. That gives me some serious ideas for kitchens. I love sonic tube columns also. Your carpenter did a great job with the exposed trusses. I love that roof.

What kind of stain gave that transparent white washed look on the wood?

I took a piece of 1/4 inch plywood and layout the rafters and then drew the plate size and bolt hole location on it. Took the plywood to my buddy who has a sheet metal shop, he programmed his plasma cutting table and cut the plates and bolt holes in them.

Thank you, I was the carpenter that did the work and the design was done mostly in head, not much was put on paper.

Tried to use a stain from Porter Paint but the wood was to hard and did not soak in. Made a mix of 50% of Zin's oil base primer and 50% of the Porter Paint stain that I got. Brushed it on and then used the bush to wipe it off and lighten it up.
