There might not have been enough money for a trip or vacation, let alone a cottage by the lake, but if a family 'scrimped' and saved, somehow, someway, that backyard would eventually get a new pool.
Be it in-ground or above-ground, there's something fun about sun and water. The Neighbour's Pools offers 2 pool types for your backyard renders. The Above-ground can be placed just about anywhere, the in-ground pool can be placed in the center yard very easily. It can also be added and moved to the left backyard. There are MAT pose files that transmaps the required 'hole' into the existing grass terrain allowing it to fit perfectly into the yard. The readme provides additional instructions to do this.
The pool set includes a plastic A-Frame step ladder for the Above ground pool. There is also a diving board and chrome deep-end grab steps for the in-ground pool. There is an additional "pool-surround" ground prop that can help provide additional area for the in-ground pool deck.
