Favorite 2×4 Outdoor Project Plans

Hey build friends!  This morning swans flew over our front porch!  Migrating birds are the first sign of spring, and we are excited to start spending more time outdoors (without a million layers of down coats on).

I’ve got lots of projects I hope to tackle this year for our new house, but wanted to take a minute to share some of my all time favorite outdoor seating projects.  Here they are, in no particular order …

1. 2×4 Adirondack Chair

This 2×4 Adirondack Chair is my favorite of all the adirondack chairs, for quite a few reasons.  I love that it is simple, econmical and easy to build.  I love how sturdy it is.  And I love that the legs and frame are 2x4s – this chair will hold up longer than a chair made with 1xs.  I’ll be building a few this summer, and expect me to beef up the arms a little more, and I’m loving penetrating stains for outdoor finishes. You can find the plans for this outdoor adirondack chair here.

2. Outdoor Sectional 

This outdoor sectional, built by East Coast Creative, is so functional and versatile!  I love how she used 2x4s for the entire project to really beef it up.  Head on over to East Coast Creative for the Build Post.

3. Firepit

These firepit benches serve as seating on the front, a tabletop on top, and extra storage (for ‘smores and beverages and extra chips of course!) underneath.  They are quick and easy to build and very sturdy and comfortable.  Love how they turned out!  Grab the free plans here.

4. Front Porch Bench

I built this bench for our lake cabin.  It is a very simple design, but the X back adds enough interest to make it front porch worthy.  It is very sturdy, and has a nice deep seat, with plenty of room for a cusion or pillows.  Grab the free plans for this outdoor bench here.
