Since moving to the new place I have been wanting to build a free standing frame for a porch swing so I can put it exactly where I want it on the new property. I really like how this came out! I decided to throw on a nice little gable roof to keep the direct sun light off me I while swing back and forth : ) I put together a set of plans you can find here if you are interested in building your own frame and there is another set for the porch swing only found here. The porch swing build is a pretty old one but I documented it pretty well on a website post found here. The plans for the frame are in metric and imperial units and the swing is a printable template that is totally free : ) If you liked the bed swing project I did a while back then keep in mind that the plans for this frame have simple notes for making it work for the bed swing as well as the porch swing. The bed swing is a bit larger and tends to be a better pick for someone interested in relaxing on nice soft cushions. They can be found here.
