    Default Architecture: post haunted house pictures...

    Hello Everyone!! Halloween was great and I had a lot of fun this year, but I'm getting tired of setting everything up and taking everything back down. I'd like to start making more permanent changes to the house.

    So, I'm thinking of doing some remodeling this summer to the front of the house and I want everyone's help on defining . . .

    What, architecturally, makes a haunted house?

    Here are some examples I have found:

    Mainly, I want to redo the front of the house so my fake tower facade becomes a real tower, and at-home office.

    It's really not that costly if you do all the work yourself. In the past seven years, I've rebuilt the main floor of our house, built a new kitchen and built all the cabinets myself, put in hardwood floors, retiled the bathroom, added a 300+ square foot sunroom with wrap-around porch, and I'm currently in the process of adding a new master bathroom and master bedroom on the second floor.

    I think the second house in the initial post is the most "classic haunted house" style.

    Here is the famous Carson Mansion in Eureka, CA:



    Seemingly a lot of turrets and being oddly shaped is a trademark of the "haunted house look"

    I agree....Phantom Manor is THE ULTIMATE LOOKING HAUNTED HOUSE....If I ever win the lottery, that's the house I'm building.....ZR
