    Hang around the pole...

    When you have one hammock, you're always short of another hammock...

    Either no one is inside or everyone wants to be inside at the same time, so we decided to do it for the crowd...

    We started to digg one hole deep over one meter and 3 feet in circumference, to place the central beam in it...

    1 meter down and 2 meters up...

    Here how we made the hook safe....

    We alternated the distance of the outer pilars, one time 4 meter and next time 5 meter, to avoid napping colisions...



    All poles 1 good meter inside ground...

    The 6 hammock island...



    This is how it looks like finished, ready to be used...



    Ok, after all that hard work, let's try it out for a while, next step will be to repaint the wall and add some nice green grass underneath...

    It's quite nice, if one hangs one way and the next opposite, you can swing and see each other...

    Have to admit this is a brilliant idea!

    However, the problem is how are you going to get any of the workers to do any work now?

    Truly a revolution in napping technology. Never seen this before, is it an original idea?

    Yep, original idea...

    Would be nice having this on a beach with the tide slowly coming up to you...

    Could be one idea for resorts...

    Just wonder about feasability on sea shore, first think to worry about is the cement to dry before the tide is back and another worry is to who belongs the sea shore in Thailand or any other beach place around the world ?...

    We do have cessions of brainstorming in it for the mo, quite ok, but we will need some shades eventually, to avoid brain cooking...

    Think in terms of a dismountable frame along the lines of a children's garden climbing frame. Perhaps it would be too heavy to take to the beach every day but it would have its own strength and rigidity so concrete wouldn't be an issue.

    hammocks are good

    the problem is moving them from one place to another (shade to sun etc)

    I now put hooks in the wall or posts and tie the hammock ends to rings. The hammock can then be easily moved around. The main problem with this is that you have to make sure the distances from hook to hook are about the same.
    I have reported your post

    ^ We plan to build some fix shades over those hammocks, just a bit to busy actually, will show pics once it is done...

    The whole place will be made up as well, grass, little flowers, different kind of birds ...

    As for moving hammocks around to the shade, another option is a stand, you can then move the stand around the best suited tree or shade without nailing hooks all over the place...

    I once lived in a Ford Econoline van equipped with one of those Mexican rope hammocks. Quite comfy for a night's sleep.

    I slept in one of Mr Reachingme's other hammocks and it was quite comfy, but I like to sleep on my side which can get a bit dangerous in a hammock.

    I like your planning. I've got a couple of Mexican/Merida hammocks and use one on the inside of my house, tied between two teak logs used for supports. Its a large enough hammock to support two people inside of it, so I have no fear of falling out of it while I'm in it. I may have to consider your idea for the outside becakuse I have no trees big enough yet to tie the hammock to.

    Nice idea. I am a side sleeper as well and I tend to fall out of a hammock but I reckon that you could make money on your concept.
