Got the rivets and door handle on the door

Ok and now back to the original post......


So this year we're building a 16 foot wide, 12 foot tall and 4 foot deep facade. This will be our representation of the Arkham Asylum to fit into our steampunk themed Gotham haunt.
We have a separate thread for the whole set up process in the general Halloween section. This is just for the facade build.

This is my doodle of what I wanted the facade to look like.

All panels are finished.

To not have to buy another sheet of brick I tried to make two smaller pieces to cover the last panel. I thought the caulking was going to be a closer color. Haha!! Can you spot the seam?

At least I didn't have to buy another sheet of brick and hopefully I'll be able to paint the seam to match.

If all else fails I'll hide it with some pipes!!! :p

YardHaunt - when do you hope to have this completed? Great Build!
Well there is "hope" and there is "have".....

Hahaha!! I hope to get it done by the time I start setting up which is the 17th. I have to get it done by the 27th which is when people can come see it all up and running. :eek:
