John Zahn, Owner & Designer

When other teenagers were working at local burger joints or mowing lawns, John dove into the swimming pool construction business, working at Sunset Designers & Builders when he was in high school. By the time he was in college, pursuing a degree in chemical engineering, he had become the sales manager for the company and was active in many other aspects of the company.

When he purchased the company from his stepfather Bob Dare, John brought his passion and extensive knowledge of custom swimming pool design and masonry construction to the business. Becoming an expert with more than 33 years of experience, it is second nature for him to take a customer’s concepts and ideas for their dream oasis and develop them into reality. Customers all over Rossmoor and Los Alamitos have realized the fullest potential of their new Outdoor Living by working with John Zahn and Sunset Designers & Builders.

John brings his diversified experience and excellent communication skills to manage the Sunset Designers & Builders team personally. John and his team are involved in each project from start to finish so that the homeowner can be assured that it will be constructed correctly to meet all of their expectations.
