hammock help? Answered

hello all i have a interesting conundrum i love my hammock (ENO single nest) and want to use it all the time inside but i have a couple of problems 1. my room is tiny and not big enough for a hammock stand and other necessary furniture and 2. i am unable to put any form of hole in my walls so i therefore turn to you instructables community  as my last hope



If there is enough room for a bed then there is room for a hammock. You just need to think outside the boxspring. Like the frame link I gave in your last question, think about maybe useing your other furniture as part of the frame. Maybe install a hook on the side of a dresser braced against a desk with a pipe. Or even useing a pipe type setup to create a frame that doesn't take up as much room. Look here for insperation. https://www.instructables.com/id/Pipe-Loft-Bed/ http://www.instructables.com/id/Pipe-Loft-Bed-Galvanized-Steel/ http://www.instructables.com/id/Hybrid-Pipe-Bed/

Just a few thoughts.

Hang it from the roof ?

Standard college-dorm solution: Build a loft which presses against, rather than being anchored into, the walls. Hang the hammock under the loft. Put at least some of the furniture on top of the loft.

Sugru? :p

Well, if you can't put any holes in the wall, then I guess you're going to have to build a custom hammock stand, that is freestanding but occupies less space than a commercial stand.

Lots of garden hammocks use a frame
