Hello, i'm new so i apologize i this isn't in the right place or if this is preemptive and i have failed to read enough into this. However, I'm very interested in completely removing a bed from the list of furniture in my room as it takes up way too much space for the size of room i have. Hence the fact that I have joined this forum. At any rate, i've read a bit on hammock stands and realize that i may have quite a few restraints on my possibilities as far as mounting eyebolts into studs is concerned, or other semi-permanent fixtures are concerned being that we rent our home. I understand that to some people, the studs in an up to code home is certainly considered sturdy enough to handle the force of a 70 inch tall 144 lb person hanging from, correctly placed and what not, but I am simply not willing to take that risk. Especially considering that this said house still has the ancient firehouse round fuses. :O I do not have to money to replace the walls, nor would i ever like to know what such a job entails as it sounds incredibly costly. I had looked into building a stand, but it seems to me that a semi permanent stand is just as space consuming as bed. So, the simple solution is to find a way to maximize space while allowing the hammock to have the full space required. I may have little to no idea what I'm talking about, so anything beyond this point might be pipe dreams.... Just fair warning for anyone reading.
First, i had imagined a stand like "turtleady", after considering the amount of space i have to what is required, something more compact while assembled is required. especially considering that her design seems to especially shine around broken down mobility.
My next thought was to buy lumber to somehow envelop the interior perimeter of my room. this would allow me to diagonally hang a hammock to support at least my own weight, even if this could only do that much, it's a major improvement on sleeping on the floor. I'll do my best to put a crude picture showing my room's dimensions. If anyone can offer advice, links, hints, tricks, or anything else, feel free to post in this thread or message me. thanks in advance!
