If you’re a person who has trouble wrapping your head around a decent work-life balance, a Louisiana company helping to bring vacations a little bit closer to home.
Zydeco Construction Company, based in Maurepas, Louisiana, is doing much more than the typical that makes man-made bodies of water for residential clients. Why have a lake or a pool when you can look out your window and behold a beautiful, sandy beach?
The structures, which they call a “swimming pond” can be configured to meet the needs of the guests, with permanent fixtures, such as gazebos, kitchens, volleyball courts and other amenities.
“It’s something that, for years, I would think to myself, ‘what if someone could figure out a way to turn a pond into a paradise?’ I wanted to be able to provide this service and wanted to be the first to do so. I did as much research as I could and applied it to building these ponds,” Eric White, founder of Zydeco Construction told The Daily Advertiser.
A key component to his success with the venture has been a patented pump for his luxurious swimming holes.
“I can come up with drainage solutions that won’t negatively affect your neighbors. Anything I can do to help save someone’s house, I will.”
So, you don’t have to feel selfish for throwing a huge, tropical body of water in your backyard.
Besides, your neighbors will probably be happy to have to in the neighborhood, so long as they can take a dip with you.
