Our house is situated on a hill with a great view of the surrounding mountains from the top. We were looking for a way to sit and enjoy the view, especially at the end of the day. We already had the swing, but had not found a place to hang it in our new yard. So . . . thus the inspiration for our project! WOW! It turned out better than we even imagined! It is a great place to view the sunset or just sit and enjoy the view of Bays Mountain. It also gives us a place to sit and enjoy the flower garden that we put in last year.
