Now this is what I call a roof top pool!





When I was in the Singapore Pavilion at Shanghai's EXPO, I saw illustrations of what i thought was a vision for the futurel. I was wrong. It was already built. And this week, according to Reuters, the new Sands Casino in Singapore, with a park on top opened its doors. While I am not a fan of casinos, I am a fan of gardens in the sky and so is Moishe Safdie who participated in the design of this one. Unbelievable!

I'm currently in Barcelona, staying at the AC Diplomatic since it advertised itself as having a wonderful roof-top pool with a view of the city. It does, but unfortunately, it pales in comparison with Singapore's new casino hotel.

I suspect Vancouver's new Casino will also pale in comparison. But that's another story.

I read a news that there was a plan of building this structure in Calgary. Roofers and professional designers have been recruited for this project. But the news stayed news, It is on Singapore now.
But it was a great idea, of putting it to Calgary, roofing company would be racing for the bid!. If ever, everybody's going to Canada for a Spring break!

I'm really enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It's a
very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit
more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?
Excellent work!

I'm not sure why but this website is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end? I'll check back later on and see if the problem still
exists.

It would be so nice to have a rooftop pool, or even to visit and swim in one. I wonder if my roofer in Calgary could hook me up? Although...I doubt the foundation of my one-story ranch-style house could support all those gallons of water. Rats!

Thanks for posting this sort of information but actually I highly recommend Roofing edmonton From beginning to end – it was smooth sailing! The roofers themselves were efficient, friendly, and respectful.
Thanks again !
