  13. How do you eliminate foot bunching in tight spaces

    That’s not a tiny house! That’s a MICROHOUSE! Maybe you should try a rectangular shaped house that allows for a 10’ or 11’ hammock. That will be much more comfortable.

    If you do indeed always lay one direction, I think it’s worth having. It just conforms to your body a little better. It’s a lot like the Wooki, in that sense. And I agree, it looks cool :)

    Perhaps for some fabrics, it may be better to go with rolled, but for most, it shouldn’t matter. Maybe for some of the heavy laminated fabrics for example, but I am no fabric expert.
