I still need a couple hundred walls. $30 for a wall is quite high. I can build them brand new and give them a primer coat for $30. I'm looking for someone who has some wall panels they need to get rid of and I expect them to be used a few seasons.

Yeah, I know what you're saying... Shoot Doug an offer and see what he can do! Otherwise building your own may be the way to go! Always fun working on a budget... Jason

One trick I have done is to buy these panels for $35 that are double sided and then make them into single sided. In wanting any used walls you have to consider possibly the gas it takes to go get them. From what I am seeing presently in lumber is so nice and inexpensive that it might be better to go with new. It depends on wether you are building a disposable haunt or want it to last for several years.

Some of the walls we use have been reclaimed and are going into their 25th year of service. Pretty creepy. Lumber just 2 or 3 years ago was not cheap and so there won't likely be cheap ones available for resale so fresh.

The other factor is wether you value your time or not. If you pay to have them built and primed or as we do here prime first then assemble, you might have as much as $50 into each one. Plus as you didn't put every screw in yourself, and it is pretty boring pointless work you will find where your helpers din't put screws in like you would have or lined them all up just right. This makes $35 sound pretty good.
