Swings Around a Fire Pit

Build an extraordinary, leisure spot in your garden.
Is there anyone who doesn’t like relaxing around the fire pit? Probably there is, but I do not know such a person. Fire is my element, and it drags me like a fish to the water, like a moth to the light and like Simon to coffee! There was always one problem with sitting around it though, so uncomfortable that you had to help yourself with even more wine to get trough the night.

Little did I know about creative garden, leisure spots before I found this Swings Around the Fire Pit project. It combines my two, favorite summer activities: swinging and relaxing with friends near the campfire. The only thing I will possibly change in my version of this fire pit, would be benches into hammocks - imagine sleeping the whole night with warm flames gently twinkling...

The second thought has come to me right now. What about making the wooden construction suitable for both, swings and hammock (for example two benches and 3 hammocks). There are some more combinations in my head as this has inspired me to go further.

I am pretty sure that you will find this project inspiring or maybe you’ll try doing it exactly the same as Dave. It take time to build such construction, I know, but even though, we’re waiting for your photos impatiently.

    What a great idea! Although I’m wondering about a smaller version of this if anyone comes up w/something less involved please regaurd…

    Me and the Hubs are sooo wanting to make this happen in our yard. Not this year though, but we are definitely thinking about it next summer ’15.

    the center for the uprights for each bay is 7′ so the area inside hexagonal wooden framing is around 125 sq feet :)

    So, if there are several ppl enjoying these swings all at once, wouldn’t the arms bump each other? I have kids, so I’m thinking they would ;)

    unfortunately there are no plans but you can find measurements and description under the link in the text :)

  6. Karina Haczek says:

    You can think of extending the distance between uprights a bit :) the other solution is hanging three swings instead of five (this seems safer for me) greets

    Or maybe a small one person swing in the two places between the larger ones…

    Love this idea, though I might opt for 3 – swinging seats, and 2 – fixed seats (or vice-versa).
