    Going Full-Time, Need Stand

    I am converting to hammock sleeping instead of a bed. I purchased an ENO DoubleNest from REI (Red and Black and on sale) and am looking at hammock stands. What ENO DoubleNest and stand combo has worked for others (preferably dynamic load tested)?
    Thanks in advance,
    Mikums

    If your not opposed to DIY here are some links to get you started:

    Then there is this that can be purchased and modified...or maybe you don't have to modify it much for the length of the ENO DN. Others will know more about that.

    If you own your house and the structure is solid, find some adequate hardware and hang from the wall studs or ceiling joists. No need for a stand. The cost will be less.

    During the day, the hammock can be stored away, giving you full use of the room.

    +1 on this. This would be my first choice and easiest if you can forgo the stand.

    This is the stand that I use. Keep in mind though, it's very low to the ground. They do have a "higher" version and had I known at the time, I would have gotten that. I sleep in a doublenest everynight, hanging from this stand and the only complaint I have is that it's too low to the ground. Even the kittykats like it!
    I'm a renter and am not sure about drilling holes and what not into my rented walls. If I owned the place, I would do that in a heartbeat! (I still might...shhhh)

    I'm in the renter boat, so I need to go stand. But one of these days...

    You won't regret it.

    Well, except for having to get up in the morning. Soooo comfy.

    Now with my new, floppy 90" wide hammock, my blankey doesn't try to slide off the hammock, it gets folded back over onto me like a surfer in the tubes. I could load the dang thing up with styrofoam peanuts and even if they weren't static charge hanging pieces of filth, they'd stay in the hammock on top of me.

    I could use real peanuts but then I'd never get any sleep and I'd be covered in shells.

    yummmmm, peanuts.

    I have a needle, thread, and bungee cord to fix that problem. I need to decide on a stand before I make that design, though. Also, have any of the proposed designs passed the dynamic load test, or will this be an even bigger adventure?

    I built a variation of the JJtheDog design. I increased the bottom supports
    to 10' x 2"x4". This increases span distance and allows me to use my superfly tarp with this stand. My stand is for outdoor use only...my wife vetoed any indoor use.
