Still plugging along!

They have started painting the outside..They just haven't gotten up enough courage to walk on the roof!

They have gotten one coat on all 4 sides!

The kids bathroom..Garrett selected the color. Tile is finished in here!

The front bedroom.

The boys bedroom. Orange was the only color they could agree on!

Tile in the master bathroom. Should finish tiling the shower today!

Started putting up the old barn siding.

The laundry room.

Close up of the trim work around the windows, with primer on them. Also, if you look real close you can see the septic tank outside. It only took two septic tanks to get the job done! Anyone have a need for a broken septic tank?

Just another picture of the front bedroom with the windows trimmed and a coat of primer.

For those of you who thought we had run out of money, we have scraped up a little more and are slowly working on the house again:-) The painters have been working and the tile man should finish up this week. Interior doors should be hung this week and finish the trim. The big hold up is going to be kitchen cabinets. We are excited about the progress! We should finish up football and fair seasons the end of the month and then we really can concentrate on finishing the house. Lots going on...so stop by and visit!

I'm happy to have another project completed for my cemetery, I spent the weekend upgrading my old store bought tombstones.

I've never really been happy with my old tombstones because I've always had a hard time keeping them standing up straight when they are placed in the ground.

In the past I've used either wooden or rebar stakes, but they look like crap from behind or snap if there's a big gust of wind.

This year I purchased 2"x 6" wood lumber, I cut the wood to match each tombstone to size, drilled holes into both the wood and tombstone, placed 8" spiked nails filled with construction adhesive foam board into the tombstones. I then drilled two additional holes on each side of the wood to pound nails threw into the ground and painted the wood grey to match the tombstones.

Next year I plan on making many of my own custom tombstones.


I just found out that my niece Megan is a Vampire and I think it's great.

This would explain why I've never see her around during the day, I just thought she was like most teenagers that like to sleep all day.

Megan will be handing out candy on Halloween night to all the kiddies, I hope she doesn't get thirsty!

I'm very excited about the new addition to the Thornhill Woods Haunted House family for Halloween 2009.
My friend Brian Lashchuk from Beyond the Grave Productions created a new custom prop for me from the soon to be released horror movie "Trick r' Treat" (Out on DVD October 6th, 2009).

One of the characters in the movie is a little kid named "Sam"who is a mischievous trick-or-treating demon that will haunt you if you don't follow Halloween traditions.

So for any of you out there that don't follow Halloween rituals, best beware of "Sam" the enforcer of Halloween.
