OK, I'm sure this has been discussed and I'll get around to doing some searching around but hang with me here...
I'm on a college campus and have access to the deck supports for the Alumni House to hang when I have to be on campus for various events (yeah, they're solid) Last night I had to go to ground, so to speak. Actually to an air mattress then a sofa, both of which sucked to varying degrees and different reasons.
Normally I hang in my spot with no tarp. It will fit length-wise but there's not much room to tie out the corners. There's a cold front coming through here now. Last night it rained off and on and the wind was rippin'. I didn't want a tarp flapping around and obviously wanted to stay dry. Thus I decided to go inside.
At the moment there's no place to hang inside but there is a garage thats pretty much open with exposed ceiling joists. The room dimensions are appx 20x28 ft and the ceiling joists are at a standard 8 ft high. I could probably build a stand that could be broken down and stashed in a corner but would also like to think about the possibility of simply suspending from the ceiling. I'm sure its doable but how have you that have done it gone about it?
