Gave husband heartburn, lured neighbors and teen daughter into helping me, gained some upper body strength, yada, yada, yada.
But, first I called Gopher State One Call to make sure I wouldn't blow up the house or electrocute myself. I rented an auger...dug some holes, bought some big ass posts, cemented them in the ground....and then gave up and hired a local guy named Niles to finish the job. We used his truck to buy the overhead horizontal planks. He bolted them in and screwed the cross boards to make sure no one got decapitated....and then I drilled in a little metal thing-a-ma-jig and hung up a really cheap hammock off of amazon.com and stuck it between two of the posts. Check out how I almost built a fence and hanging plant holder here.
