View Full Version : Hayride facades & sets

To anyone who works or builds at a hayride attraction:
I had a quick question about the sets and facades you guys build. I was curious if you sink any wood into the ground (make footings) so that it provides a more steady set, or do you just build on top of the ground and some how secure them from behind. Any info (and pictures) would be great!

this past year was my first building in a corn maze with a hay ride i built everything in a 2x4 base with the set in the midle so there was a 4 foot back section and a 4 foot porch section. i did have a few with no porch and i anchored those down woth t post drilled with a holl for securing the bottom framing to them we had 60 plus mile per hour winds this year with no problems.
best of luck to you
