Building codes generally state that porch rails must be constructed to be at least 36 inches tall to keep you safe from falling. While these requirements do keep you safe, the mandatory height obstructs your view if you are sitting in a traditional deck chair, such as an Adirondack. This can be frustrating.
So we conceived of and designed the Tall Rocker to eliminate the problem of our scenic views being obstructed by porch rails.
First, we built a prototype and tested it with our parents. The chair proved to be so easy and comfortable for them to sit on that we had to practically beg them to let us sit in the chair. The results spoke for themselves: We had designed a safe, comfortable chair that removed the porch rail obstruction from our line of sight, and our parents could get in and out of the chair easily.
We had solved the main problem. But we wanted this chair to be the best it could be.
Since we (and our parents) also like to enjoy a beverage or two, we also integrated two oversized cup holders into the design. After more design tweaks, we gave birth to The Tall Rocker.
