How to do freestanding pull up bar?

I would like to ask you about DIY pull up bar. Unfortunately I'm not able to choose pull up bar for walls or for ceiling, because it won't work in my house. I can buy pull up bar for door frame, but I am not sure about this soultion - I think it would constrict me. However I saw in the Internet the people, who made their own freestanding pull up bars. I want to ask you - do you have a good solution to make a freestanding bar? Do you know, what I will need to do it? Please, help me! I want to exercise with pull ups, but for now I'm unable! :(

    pull up bars are ok for well made door frames and chin up bars.
    if either are poor, expect to either see your door frame cracked or your ass on the floor holding onto a bent chin bar

    Those ones that Kitty showed are okay but not if you have plasterboard above door frames.  I got one for a tenner just for the lifting straps that came with it.
