    DIY Tarp for 2 hammocks (Honeymoon Suite)

    I had plans to design and build this about a year ago, but was delayed. It’s a tarp for 2 hammocks that can be enclosed for storms and privacy for my wife… The tarp is basically a winter tarp with a ‘V’ top. The top starts at 2” V (front) to 36” V (back). The back has 2 extra ‘D’ rings on each end with a Whoopie 7/64 attached, so it can be tightened to give the top back ‘V’ slack. I added 1/8 stretch cord to pull the back ‘V’ up to repel water when raining. For the Side Pull Outs, they are 2’ apart with a 4’ stretch cord (1/8”) attached to both pull outs and a cord is attached to the middle of that. The tarp is made of 1.1 syl, Forest Green with a Gray top and weighs 29 oz. At the Ozark Hang last year UncleMJM and I were talking about it and he came up with the name ‘Honeymoon Suite’, so … Thanks UncleMJM.

    Thanks for the dimensions, my husband and I plan to 'hang together' and just use one tarp. That's my next project and I was wondering how big to make it. I like how you have the 'doors' you can close.

    That is one BEAST of a tarp! Awesome job! I may not need one that big, but I sure want one. ;-)

    This is great! I've been hanging two hammocks under my 12x12 tarp recently, and it works, but I love the coverage yours offers. That triangle/"V" top is a great idea!

    The Honeymoon Suite looks great Smokehouse! I just showed Cindy the pictures and she loves it too.

    I can't wait to get my hands on it and start playing around with setup so it will look like we know what we are doing when we see you at the Ozark hang in March.
