    We do one every year in our yard,my wife told me this year 2011 will be our 10th year.We are free and open oct 30-31 only.So this year she wants to expand it and go all out,if u are in the area e-mail me and I will send u directions.We do it for free because people can not afford to take a family of 4 through a spookhouse that charges $20 a head,we do it for family fun and not for greed.

  2. Please don't use black plastic – it is flammable and you will fail your fire inspection. Use black sheets(maybe with a fire-retardant treatment) or painted (latex paint) plywood. Tie the walls together at the top edges with more 2x4s to make all the walls a single unit, to prevent toppling. Great ideas, keep it up!

  3. Pretty Cool, but when people go into the home haunts, they are stupid and always bump into the walls on purpose, no L shape is gonna hold not freaking over excited teenager in your house. Most likely they will knock them down, so you should had added to make the walls secure either from the ceiling or the ground by screwing them down.

  4. For walls I use clothes line rope,,$2 for 100 ft..tie it 10 ft off the ground and pin plastic to it,quick easy and doesnt take up much room in storage…this will be our 7 year of our free haunted house.

  5. Yes and then when it starts to burn after a few seconds of some punk putting a lighter to it and as you pass out from the fumes you say, "Wow, I am glad I didn't use cardboard or wood for my covering! I really wanted to be a part of my haunt forever as a corpse!"
