Quick Question

I know it says newly built. No kits

How newly built is newly built? (This month, this year. within last year?)

Just curious.

Even if I am not eligible I want to show off mine. Built in October last year.

I'm so excited...today we went and bought all the materials to make our coffin. Thanks to this contest otherwise I think it may have taken me longer to get my builder to start this! We picked up quite a few other things too! Getting ready to put together props and also bought glue for paper mache and dry loc to make those cardboard box rocks Ghostess makes to hide her spotlights.

Also bought a bunch of spray paint & twines to work on the bottles for my "Spell & Potion" room. Gonna paint them & make labels this year. Got spray paint by the case to start the addition to the cemetery. Have all the materials on hand to make at least 4 more sections.

I guess it really sunk in when I said...."Hey its been 6 months since Halloween & we ain't done a thing!" lol

On with the building! (Pictures to follow!)

I wish the contest was extended to just a little later in the spring. Our weather has been so temperamental here, that any outdoor projects have yet to begin here. We actually had some flurries forecast last weekend, although all we ended up with was a good stiff frost. :rolleyes:

Looks like you have quite the workspace there to work with Muffy.. I started to build some coffins this weekend. Not sure down your way but pine boards of that size here would be fairly pricey

Hey Scream.....we do most of our building outside cause the garage is full of ...you know what....Halloween stuff......today we dragged everything inside cause it started to rain. We can build in the one neighbors sheds but then we have to drag a bunch of stuff over there so its easier to just work in the yard here.

Those pine boards were eleven something a piece but then when I looked at the receipt 3 of them were only $9.00 and the sku's were different from the eleven dollar ones. Should have hauled them other 5 back in and got the cheaper ones.....receipt said shelving so not sure what they are but they were in the bend with the pine boards.
