    Hammock Bunk Bed

    I made hammocks for my kids this year for Christmas and my son wanted to try his out, so we took out his mattress off the bunk bed and hung the Whoopie slings on the diagonal supports. The distance between the posts is perfect for the kids, but I had a hard time fitting.

    He sure looks happy. I know I would. I also know it would be harder to get me out of that hammock.....I wouldn't want to leave that comfy hang!!

    That's way better than the bunk bed I had when I was a kid!
    Very cool.

    I've been thinking about doing the same for my 3 kids....

    Did you make them "kid size", "nearly adult size" or "adult size"? Single layer or double layer? Do you plan to use them on a backpacking/camping trip? Netting? Bottom insulation?

    I've been trying to figure a way to do the same thing on my dorm room-type loft. I think it's just too short to work. :-(

    It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    Formerly known as Acercanto, my trail name is MacGuyver to some, and Pucker Factor to others.

    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness. - Randy Glasbergen
