Has anyone ever tried constructing a facade using PVC instead of wood? I’ve seen some amazing witches shack/swamp shack facades made from pallets and 2x4s but I’ve had a lot of success building figures and an arch from PVC and figured better the devil I know...My plan is to zip tie chicken wire...
So it's that time. I debated for quite some time if I wanted to do a midweek setup this year with Halloween being on a Thursday. But we're locked in to having it up this year with our application to be on the SoCal Hauntlist.
These are some pics from the setup from last year.
This is the...
This year's theme is Medieval/Castle/vikings. I am thinking a turret castle with a drawbridge for my entrance. I have a big old barn where I hold my party and build the appropriate theme entrance where guest walk in. Does anyone have pictures of things they have done for inspiration? My height...
Some pics of our yard haunt from 2018. Had a lot of fun with this theme. I didn't have the chance to display the Wasp props I got from Nevermore Productions, but those will be setup this year. Also the last 3 pics was taken a week before we setup the awesome sewer facade from Nevermore Productions.
Hi Everybody, Here is the street view of this year's attempt.
Apologies, the camera still doesn't do the actual presentation justice..
This year's inspiration..

-A dance recital song (Pitbull's Fireball)...
I've been very busy this year and haven't had much time for props like I usually do but my daughter and I did manage to build this mausoleum facade to house my laser vortex. We'll make the gate next year.

This is a little different post - hoping to get some advice. So we setup large facades each year for our haunted western town. They all can be setup with two people typically, which is nice since it is usually my wife and I working on it. We have one heavy facade - it's 14' wide by 13' tall (at...
Hey Guys I need some help!
We do a large home haunt in upstate new york and we are redoing our facade. Our set has a theme of a 1900's sanatorium. We are aiming for the brick building style. I was thinking about using the brick panels are Lowe's and age them but they are made of hardboard...

Since my rear projection wall is near completion I've started on the other big project on my list. I'm going to be skinning the front of my house pretty much the same way i did the projector wall. I also have some smaller things ill be working on in between so thought i would start a thread to...
So part of my haunt this year is a broken down wall with a projector behind it. i just finished the screen and thought id share. I'm kind of flying blind on this because i've never done it before but it seems to be turning out nicely. hopefully the facade will come out as well. at the moment I'm...
I started planning my 2016 haunt over the weekend and realized that I hadn't posted any pics on HF from my 2015 garage haunt. I did a Silent Hill theme and was really happy with how it turned out. The biggest challenges were the sign and a new facade. Here's a pic of the sign...
Here is a video of the facade I made for the garage door. My wife requires that if I intended to keep it up for any length of time the garage door has to work. https://www.facebook.com/EdgewaterMortuary/videos/919201974856788/
