If you have got a summer home then you probably know what an Adirondack chair is. These chairs were custom built by Thomas Lee back in 1903. He experimented with the chairs on his family and came out with the best design for the Adirondack chairs. He then gave it to a carpenter friend of his, who got it patented and started manufacturing. Today, Adirondack chairs have become a symbol of outdoor life.
Each little detail of the Adirondack chair is what makes it so special outdoors. The seat and the backrest are perfectly designed so that you are comfortable no matter what the surface feels like. Even in the case of a slope, the chair is capable of adjusting perfectly to it. Some of the latest versions of Adirondack chairs have slotted back legs so that the slant of the backrest can be adjusted. These have become very popular around swimming pools as it allows people to relax with a book, while flattening out completely so that even sunbathing is possible.
Though Adirondack chairs are convenient for an outdoor environment, they can be very expensive, and transport of the chairs can sometimes be a problem. However, now this problem has been overcome with the introduction of Adirondack chair kits. These Adirondack chair kits have become increasingly popular. They are usually cheaper than readymade Adirondack chairs, in addition to being very portable since they come in a compact pack.
Assembling the Adirondack chair kits are not that difficult, since all of them come with detailed instructions as well as the tools needed to do the job. Therefore, the only things you will need are some basic handyman skills.
Adirondack chair kits come in different types to suit the needs of various people. The most basic Adirondack chair kits come with simply the cut out pieces of wood. You will need to use your own tools to set the chair up and when you are done, sandpaper the whole thing to give it the necessary finish for use. However, this may not be convenient for people who do not possess the skills to do that. Additionally, the sawdust makes the basic Adirondack chair kits a messy thing.
Higher detailed kits have been created so that people who just want to simply assemble the chair can do so without much trouble. These Adirondack chair kits have the pieces of wood already sandpapered and polished. They have also got tools in them so that you do not have to purchase tools separately. All that is required is simple assembly according to the instructions.
Adirondack chair kits are available for various types of chairs. Adirondack chairs have been modified to make Adirondack “loveseats” for couples, children’s chairs and so on. Each of these Adirondack chair kits come with detailed instructions, making them very easy to assemble.
