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.

Check out his solution (with detailed instructions) for this heavy duty porch swing.
