    How many of us sleep every night in a hammock?

    Indoors, in place of a bed, that is...I know there are a few of you who spend more nights camping than at home, you don't count!

    I'm thinking of putting a loft style bed in the extra room and hanging my hammock underneath it. What say you lot?

    sounds like a cool nesting spot for uncontrolable nap syndrome.

    Ckeck out my signature! What's the loft bed for? Might be a good place tto store hammock gear.
    Most of us end up poorer here but richer for being here. Olddog, Fulltime hammocker, 365 nights a year.

    I sleep full time in mine and have been since I built my td stand. I spent a few nights in bed with my wife before making the full transition. My 16 month old son claimed my spot on the bed and surprisingly she has less room now than she did before. The loft bed thin is a decent idea, but I'd recommend a stand. You can move it all out of the way if you use the room for anything else.

    I'd use the loft for storage, this would probably go in my home office and the shelf area would be helpful to store my camping and outdoor gear that I don't want in the garage. Right now it's a fight for closet space!
