On the other side of the room do the same thing. Then to borrow from the turtlelady/turtledog stands secure a compression pole to the top of the 4x4, whether you do that my cutting a U shape to accept the pole or some other means to hold it still is up to you. Now simply hang your hammock from the compression pole... Easy to put up and down and doesn't take up the whole room. Again this is purely theoretical but I can't see why it wouldn't work. You could use THESE poles as mentioned in the turtledog stand thread.
    Red, I am in the process of doing something quite similar to what you describe, but going full wall height to allow for more adjustability for different hammocks, where the point of hanging will be on the verticals and the compression piece will only keep the ends from pulling in. When finished and tried I will post results.

    Cool, I can't wait to see how it goes. I'd consider doing it myself if I thought I could get it past the wife.
    Good luck,

    Here are some pics of my fulltime stand and a link to the thread. Got the base stand second hand and lengthened the toprail. Hopefully will go to that great hammock hang in the sky while in this one.http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=35273

    hanging inside

    i use eye hooks from home depot and make sure to put them into a stud.
    i use a drill to pre drill the hole i also recommend liquid nail to help hold the eye hooks inside the studs.
