The Cypress Porch Swing Bed is a beautiful addition to any porch. It’s made from natural wood that is resistant to insects as well as being an environmentally friendly wood. It’s a stunning wood that is incredible whether you leave it natural or apply a stain.
The cypress wood is known for its strength and durability. The swing is well-constructed and able to hold up to 600 pounds. That can hold two adults easily with room left over for the children. Everyone can snuggle in this swing bed.
This swing bed doesn’t come with its own mattress, but the width and length means that you can easily add your own twin mattress to the porch swing. Choose the thickness that suits your needs, and you’ll be able to have relaxing snoozes on the back porch in the summer. If you have a screened back porch, you could even turn the space into an extra room for guests during kid’s sleepovers.
The Louisiana cypress wood has a natural chemical that repels insects. It’s called Cypressine, and it protects the wood from decay as well. With the naturally occurring chemicals, you’re purchasing an eco-friendly product that doesn’t require more work to keep it new looking and maintained each year. The wood won’t warp or twist, either.
Specifications & Details
The swing isn’t assembled when you receive it, but it’s a simple process to unpack the materials and put them together. The porch swing bed has 5 supports on the back and 5 on the seat. All you have to do is connect the back and the seat to each other and add the arms to assemble the product.
After assembly, you do have to attach the swing to your porch. You should have enough space for the bed to swing without hitting the house or any railings or posts. The 6′ bed swing measures 75 inches long and 39 inches deep in the seat. The outside measurements are 83 inches by 45 inches. The unit needs approximately 5 to 6 inches of clearance.
The swing comes with all the materials you’ll need to attach it to the porch ceiling like chains, S-hooks, eyebolts, and bolts. You might need a drill to start the holes for the screws, but otherwise, all the materials you need are in the box.
Each slat is screwed to the frame to provide a sturdy swing that won’t break. Wood that is nailed together leaves a frame that is prone to wiggling. The constant wiggle can actually dislodge the nails. There are 5/16 bolts for extra sturdy construction. All the hardware is galvanized and zinc plated to ensure that the entire swing is rust resistant.
The swing is constructed using slats that are finish sanded on all sides, so you could leave it completely natural. The slats are an inch thick and 1 and ¾ inches wide and routered. This gives you slats that don’t have splinters and are incredibly supportive without sharp edges.
