I am constructing one using 12' poles and will anchor them in the ground with post and fence cement. The swing beam will be 100" above the ground making it easy for the adult person to enjoy the swing without having feet and legs folded underneath swing. I purchased a ready made swing with vinyl coated chains and rubber seat. The chain/seat assembly is 72" in length. The assembly comes with bolts and washers and nuts. These are attached by drilling through the swing beam. I was concerned about the screw circle bolts not standing the rigours of an adult.
