This is the first half of backyard project #3 for this summer. I had a whole bunch of 4x4's from my old vegetable garden boxes that I had to tear down when I built the garage and fence. I wanted to use them somehow, but not have to go get anymore wood from the store. So I envisioned a corner bench in the back corner of my yard. Voila! Here it is!
Step 2 of this project is to somehow build a corner pergola to sit over top of the bench. I'll have to think on that one for a while.
That puppy is heavy. Supported by stringers attached to the fence as well as a support post that runs to the ground. I think it's sturdy enough to hold at 2 adults. For sure it holds me, so that's good! If I feel it's too wobbly being attached to the fence like it is, I'll take it down and build legs for it. But I think it looks cool this way. I'll either hunt down or make a weather proof cushion for it and pillow. I can see me relaxing out there when I just want to go and get away. Once that tree grows in back there some more, it will be quite private. I have a few other things I want to do in that same back area as well. But I can't give away my secrets.
