    Bug net dimensions???

    Ivleph said: "The only thing asymmetric about that would be the bug netting."

    So... does anyone know the dimensions or proportions of the bug netting? I would like to make an HH clone that has an attached net.

    Thanks,
    Erin

    My tutorial for the HH clone has instructions for measuring and cutting bug netting and top covers. Bottom of the second post.

    if you're gonna do all that, why copy the hh shape? put the corners of the net where you want them, this includes your ridge distance too(length of the netting piece). here's how to figure it.

    measure the edge of the hammock where the net will be attached. say this distance is 110", then the 1,2,3 or more legs on each side of the net shape need to add up to this number. actually, the raw cut edge of netting is incredibly stretchy, so even if you try not to stretch it at all, you will probably stretch it a little, i was cutting the edges of the netting to add up to 3" less per side than what the hammock was. if you do it with pins you might be able to do it without stretching it.

    also don't figure for a point at the two ends, make it so there is a short side at each end (about 1" long) this leaves 1/2" for a rolled hem on each side.

    if you make a custom shape, you can pick the ridge distance, and the net corner locations, number of pull tabs etc. you may find better shapes than the hh shape.

    wilsonbmw,

    Thanks so much for taking those pics and voiding the warranty on the HH . You are the man.

    BTW, it was mentioned earlier that the HH site list the fabric dimensions of each model of hammock here.. JRB owners could also use their quilts to find the asymmetrical tie out points on the DIY version of these hammocks.

    Looks like I will be sewing tonight.

    did anyone take down all of the dimensions before they took this page down? I'm looking for the dimensions of a HH Expedition Deluxe ASYM, the one for tall folks.

    thanks

    HH removing bug net

    I can't remember their name but there is a company that will mod your HH with a zipper on both sides of the hammock so that you can completely unzip the bug netting. It's cheaper than buying a second hammock and cutting it appart (plus less nerve-wracking).
