    For some reason nI haven't really posted an update in awhile...

    1) The haunt is in the garage and about half way asembled.

    2) I'm working hard to get as many panells up and ready to be painted this weekend.

    3) Here's a link to pictures... http://my-halloween-haunt.blogspot.c...0/09/well.html

    That's it for now...

    If you need pallets check craigslist. And once you get a charity to donate to have them write you a donation letter that you can take to your hardware stores and try to get some free supplies, I usually get around 500 to 800 dollars of free lumber every year. If you start a website make sure you have a sponsor page to show them. If you need any other help just send me a message.

    This isn't what you want to hear this late in the game but many haunters (most?) make their walls with the 2x4 or 2x3 laying flat on the plywood, rather than up on the 2-inch end like you have. This makes the walls take up a little less room, especially important in a small haunt, and makes them sturdier.

    On the downside, it does make them a little harder to connect together since you have to drill through the long part of two separate 2x4s to run a bolt connecting two panels. Many have taken to using screws and power drivers for ease of assembly and disassembly.

    Here's a quick upodate I think I took these pictures about a week ago, so not quite current. This weekend I went through about two gallons of black paint I need one more gallon of black plus a color for our room after the mine. Really the only thing that's different from these pictures is the paint and one wall tin the mine. Happy Haunting!

    Looks like alot of work, but sounds like you are happy with how it looks and how you are progressing. Keep up the good work going forward. The most important thing is too have the passion to spend the time and energy on this, and it definiteyl seems like you do.
    Also try not to pay too much attention to posts on this forum that are negative, if you get any, you know what works best for you.
    Thanks for the post on my thread. I gotta get pics up now that my buildings and maze are basically outlined.
    Good luck and great job!
