    I was gonna try that this weekend. My only concern with that is that if it's already in the dumpster it's probably torn up or got a bunch of holes from other stuff thrown in the dumpster.

    Also, if anyone has tried that, are they really that willing to give it to you? I just figure they have more to do than babysit me while I go get my tyvek scrap. I know most of them don't like random people walking around the construction site unsupervised.

    There's someone on WB selling 5' wide pieces, any length you want, for $1/foot.

    most of the time you will find it laying around on the ground, plus if you go when no one is there they won't know

    That's kind of what I was thinking. I know of a road nearby where about 10 new houses are being built. I might drive by tomorrow to scout them out. They are all in the tyvek/siding stage now so that will probably have some still laying out.

    You can make a few hammock related accessories from Tyvek. Check out the Definitive Tyvek write ups in the Articles section.
