    It saddens me when great homes like this one, have fallen apart and are neglected. If only they could be saved.

    If I ever have a porch on my house, I would love to have one of these swings. Then I could go out and relax on it.

    As much as I like beaded board, I wouldn’t want to use it because I don’t see it lasting very long and I am all about avoiding house projects.

      Go to and look for the info there. I think you probably have to go to the production sites for each individual show to fill out applications.
