When I first saw my house, I fell in love with the front porch that runs along the entire front side. It’s huge (about 8′ x 35′) and the perfect spot for a porch swing. However, I’m a hair under 6’2 and I used to play rugby so I am most assuredly not petite or dainty. When I tried to find a nice swing to put up in my awesome porch I couldn’t find any that were even remotely acceptable. They were all too small, too uncomfortable, too flimsy, and just generally not right.
