House Facade (Wood Build)

Hello everyone,

I set up a graveyard scene last year but with my house in the background it really took away from the whole effect.

I tried to hide the house with lighting, trying to keep the house dark and all the stuff in the foreground lit, but still didnt get what I wanted.

So this year I really wanted to focus the attn away from the house and I started work on a facade of an old wooden house to place in front of my house to hide it.

Figured Id share some photos. My wood siding was delivered yesterday so I plan on working on it this weekend but heres the wood frame I got done last weekend.

Everything is 4x8 panels that bolt together so I can take the whole thing down easily and store in a 4foot x 8foot stack.

The large window on the left is where my screen for my projector will go. Ill have Mark Gervais's "Hallowindow 2009" playing.

That's nothing, you've got to think bigger! Just kidding. That's an awesome project. Just make sure before you set it up that your neighbors know that the drop in local property values will only be temporary. :p

Those in other parts of the country might not appreciate your dedication to such a big outdoor project at this particular time. That Arizona sun that is making the grass so green has brought higher temperatures with it. A daily low of 100 degrees will be a thing of the past until Halloween.

You also don't want to leave it up too long because a building inspector might spot it. It isn't anchored down but they might then consider it a fire hazard and sic the fire department on you.

Looks amazing, by the way. When you decided to fix last year's little appearance problem you really went all out.
