I have always been a creative artist. Fascinated with design, architecture and engineering. I came to the pool and spa field quite by accident when I was contracted to create concept illustrations from proposed plans for one of the Southeasts' most awarded luxury pool and spa companies. The unique challenges inherent in designing and building swimming pools into the hilly terrain of the North Georgia area revealed itself as a great fit for my talents and soon I was the lead designer. Working with clients, guiding them through the design process while coming up with creative ways to stay within the constraints of the budget was a delight. Witnessing the reasons the swimming pool industry has earned a reputation as tarnished as Used Car Salesmen and Politicians was disappointing at best. The only way I was going to be able to look a client in the eye and shake their hand was to take on the responsibility of the project through to completion. Thus was established John Byrd Design as a design build firm. I build a small quantity of high caliber projects per year with the utmost care. I would like nothing better than to offer you an experience that exceeds your expectations and add you to the growing list of satisfied clients. I look forward to hearing from you.
