Hi, I was wondering if you would be willing to tell me how many inches are between the bottom of the swing and the arm rests. The only thing that stops me from hanging a huge glider in my front porch is the knowledge that I would turn into one of those crazy porch swing addicts who refuses to do anything except nap, read, and yell at the children to bring more snacks. If so, here's a simple DIY giant porch swing, spotted via Nest Egg, that you can recreate with a few simple materials: wood, rope, hooks, cushions, and (optional) a beautiful view.
To make it, start by building a wooden platform, roughly 6 feet by 4 feet, and add railings for the back and sides.
It is nice for even a 6'7" man to lay on because big feet can drape across the wide armrests.
