I have long desired a nice sturdy porch swing for my front porch, unlike many of the less robust swings I see available at various big box stores as well as online; I find The Lakeland Mills Porch Swing offered in several sizes and styles including 4 and 5 foot seat lengths as well as two seat and table between, is a good-looking, robust and well-designed seating resolution for my front porch.
Available and online Lakeland Mills Swings are also offered by big box stores, Atwoods Farm Supply and other walk in type markets. While The Lakeland Mills Swing does not come with chain for suspending the swing the kit itself is well made with precision length materials, holes drilled to align with one another and Husband vows is one of the more easily finished kits he has undertaken.
I like that the swing is contoured to fit under my knees in more comfortable manner than some that are made with squared off edges. Physical appearance of the swing includes a log constructed shell having nice high back, smooth wide plank seat with log side members finished with eye screw and S hooks for attaching to chain. The shell constructed is heavy duty with 2 horizontal logs per seat and two for back offset with 2 side logs for back and 2 for seat. Back and seat are brought together using vertical logs, side arms are formed from smoothed logs, and lastly two tall uprights finished the swing, provide more sturdiness and offer manner for hanging the swing.
If attaching swing to porch beams a short length of chain may be needed; we buy chain at the local Atwoods Farm Supply. If attaching to a standing frame, available separately from Lakeland Mills, a shorter length of chain or none at all may be needed.
Sturdy, long wearing insect and rot resistant cedar, is an excellent material for outdoor use, some small cracks or crazes often seen in cedar is a normal aspect found in cedar. My California cedar fence had a number of cracks and crazes, I did not find they detracted from either sturdiness or beauty of the fence, and do not hurt appearance or sturdiness of The Lakeland Mills Swing.
When setting out to look for a porch swing for myself I knew that a rustic, country type swing was sure to be a more practical and feasible look for our rural area Farm Type house.
I find stylish, comfy sitting, effortlessly assembled Lakeland Mills Porch Swing to be an ideal choice.
Happy to recommend country style Lakeland Mills 5 Ft Porch Swing.
