Front porch bench – There are enormous cool lounge sofas for outside to find online, but you pay the first prize for that. After having done a lot of research, I decided to start using scaffolding wood myself to be able to realize the perfect bench and thus save costs. I am not yet 100 percent confident that I will succeed but I will try! You can read about this on the blog in due course. I have now determined the dimensions and calculated what materials I need.
I chose to make an L-shaped sofa with a separate stool that can be used as a table, as an extra seat, but also to realize an extra lounge area. The top will also form a flap so that cushions can be stored in it. Handy such a hocker! I made a top view of the porch to scale, so you get an idea how it will look like and how the space should be filled.
The bank will occupy an enormous space. I want a couch with sufficient seating, where you can sit on with several people, but also very pleasant to lounge on. The inner size of the sofa is 200×300 cm. Since we have a tight budget, I do not want to spend hundreds of euros on custom made pillows and I have therefore chosen to match the dimensions to 3 sofa cushions of 50×150 cm and lots of cozy back cushions.
