Prop Building

Welcome to our 'Prop Building' page!   Like many of you fellow "Halloweeners" we started out putting scary decorations in our yard for Halloween.   That eventually led to a more elaborate Halloween Party and Dance that we held in our barn.     This included a small, informal walk through area that our guests (family and friends) could go through during the party.     Of course like all fanatical Halloween nuts, we have since gone all out and graduated to a full-blown professional Haunted Barn open to the public several days during the Halloween season.

Many people have asked us how we make some of the props and sets that we have inside the haunt.    Many of them are simple optical illusions that you can all make at home.     We work year 'round making a lot of these things and rely heavily on THE MONSTER LIST (click here to read more...).   This is a list put together by people across the nation that all enjoy Halloween and work together to share their ideas and inventions.     We wouldn't be where we are today without this great tool.
