I use my garage and some black plastic to drape it off. If you dont have a garage consider a yard haunt I am doing one of them this year as well. You may also find some of those easy ups at yard sales. You can you those with the black plastic as well. I hope this helps, Im not a pro either I just like to have fun with it. Poeple in the neighborhood seem to like it alot. Last year was my 1st year but people were asking if I was doing it again. It just take time I always start in august. Each year I get more and more ideas and run out of time to finish all of them, so thats how I have to start the next year.
