My friend and I went to Menards today to check out the osb that howe improvement stores carry.
We were in the lumberyard and someone asked if we needed help. Please!!
Naw, we are just looking at lumber, getting ready to make a haunted house.
Haunted house you say?
Can I ask a dumb question, would you want to buy a haunted house?
Do tell I said.
To make a long story longer, Menards has a haunted house every October for little kids to plug their halloween decorations. This year they wont because they are moving to a new lumber yard.
Get this: for $75 I got 16 panel wall including 4 forest scene panels and 5 brick panels. A roll of carpet. 20 4x8 made in a ladder shaped. 6 6x8 a ton of black plastic. And a haunted house sign.
I am so stoked I want to start tomorrow! Who wants to help? for the first year this is too much for just one man, I need help!

Score one for you! Nothing like cheap supplies you can repurpose into something else!

Very nice dude, we're just now getting supplies together for the planning stage for our haunt and lumber adds up big time. Sounds like you got a nice starter package there. Good luck

Cool score - sometimes you just get lucky like that. Other times it takes months of dumpster diving.
