Hanging a hammock
for lack of a better forum, I thought I'd try my luck here.
We want to hang a hammock. No spreader bar, it's only got the loops on each end.
We have one tree. We can either attach one end via a hook that we attach to our garage (will this be strong enough to support?) or should we install a 6x6" post in concrete, though the post can only be 4 1/2 feet in height (ordinance restrictions).
Our garage is wood sided, I was thinking of putting the hook into the "frame" area and drill a hook through to the other side of the frame and bolt it on the opposing side. ?
If we hang it on the garage, if feasible, the height at which we hang the hook is more flexible. If we hang it on a post, the highest we could probably go is 4 feet.
I looked up all other specs as far as hanging a hammock, distance, etc., but nothing about my situation.
How should we proceed? Suggestions?
