Every now and then you need to take time to relax and enjoy yourself on the porch, says Vann Cochran, co-owner of Vintage Porch Swings, which gives new wood a retro finish. Life is so busy, you want to just slow down and do nothing sometimes.
Cochran’s partner, Brent McHenry, started their business in 2008. Cochran, a former custom home builder, saw one of McHenry’s bed swings and bought half of the business almost two years ago.
McHenry says after making his first bed swing for his wife, Krista, his neighbors began requesting them.
The business has grown much larger than he ever anticipated, McHenry says.
It’s been fun to watch it grow. We put our heart and soul into every swing. We sell a lifestyle. Our customers get to have a sanctuary within their house.
