    Indoor Hang

    I have hung indoors for years. Mostly out in my storage building/Shop while working on the honey do list. In the shop I just ran a large eye bolt into a stud and hooked up the hammock. Indoors however my wife required it to look a little nicer.
    In the photo you can see I used a large eye bolt and a wooden caster cup ( those items you put under a caster rollers on hard wood. I simply use a studfinder to locate the center of the stud, predrilled a whole in the caster cup and wall, then screwed it in until it bottomed out.

    The wooden cup does two things for the mount, the first, it dresses it up a little. secondly, by screwing in the bolt until it is tight, it helps support the sheet rock a little.

    This one went in my sons room, he has slept in it every night since it went up. He needs to send Thing1 a thank you note. as it was her story that got mom to let her guard down enough to let me proceed.

    I have enjoyed hanging out and helping with homework a little more as well.

    This is my first post with a photo, hope it works if not the image is in my gallery.

    Jerry,
    I took a bold step. It was for my son so the risk was worth it. I simply pointed out all the nail holes she has put in the house over the years with all the "pretty" photos and nick nacks that we have Hanging all over the place. And that I would be the one that would have to spackle over before painting. (that is should we ever move and try selling the house). She agreed that I would be the one doing the work anyhow so why not. Plus, I think we got her at a weak moment.

    Amazing how much the wood caster cup dresses up the hardware. Take heed gentlemen. Making it look good goes a long way towards helping convince your wives.

    You only need ten feet.
    Standard popular hammocks (BB, HH, etc.) have a ~110" ridgeline. Doing a custom short suspension will allow for those to fit in a 120" span.

    I'm looking to do the same thing for our "guest" bedroom when I move. It's only really for a very specific guest who comes over once in a while or myself/wife if the other is having trouble sleeping.

    Not sure what type of walls I'm going to have and I already know it's not 10ft wide we'll see - needs to fit a 6ft 5ins 'me' in it.
