Default Porch Swing

I want to build a porch swing in an area of our main garden that is always in the shade. This area of the garden isn't used to grow anything other than some mint nearby. It's the perfect area for a porch swing.

I looked online at all the local big box type stores (Home Depot, Sears, Lowes, McCoy's and even Walmart) and found that none of them carry porch swings in-store. Is everything .com now?

I found one that is interesting at I like the price and the fact that it comes ready to finish.

Being that it is the shade 24/7 there's no need for a shaded top (cost too much anyway) and I want to build the support frame to look like the picture below - and also paint the swing and support to match the picture.

What I want to use for the support frame is landscape timbers. Something sort of like this

I need to add the picture and then I'll reply more info and questions.
