We're totally ready to take our entire lives outdoors — seriously, if we could figure out how to get Netflix on our patios, we'd be doing it. Either way, we're currently contemplating how to turn our outdoor spaces into open-air living rooms/offices/play rooms, and one of the most fun ways to do that is to add a porch swing. Most of these swings require an overhang for installation, but we've also included a freestanding option if that's not in the cards. Swing away!
