Camp Washington’s Swing House is open on Saturday for the curious public to poke around.
It took artist Mark de Jong around three years to complete the renovations to a 1880s three-story brick building, removing the upper floors and creating a functional work of architectural art that does in fact feature a swing suspended from rafters in the ceiling.
The house includes a kitchen, bedroom, floating cabinets, a bathroom — all the normal accessories you’d find in an average abode — and you can even rent it on Airbnb. If you can’t make it to this open house, don’t worry: The Swing House is open the second Saturday of every month.
Noon-4 p.m. Saturday. Free admission. Swing House, 1373 Avon Place, Camp Washington, swing-house.com.
