Steven also has a huge heart, he helped with the set up and tear down of my haunt this year. He was around almost every evening during the week of Halloween and was always willing to lead a helping hand.
I believe a star has been born and this kid could go places in his future with the haunt industry or anything else he sets his mind too.
Kim supported our haunt throughout the week leading up to Halloween almost every night by scaring people and helped with the construction of the entire haunt.
He's an amazing kid, he stayed to the bitter end to tear down the haunt in the dark and never complained once. I wish all the other kids in the neighborhood were like him.
Thanks again Kim.

I now have to rent storage space to keep all my wall panels, canopy tent, tomb stones, and all my pillars.
I owe a big thank you to my friend Lorne Andrews from the Power House of Terror for allowing me to share one of the three tractor trailers he uses to store his haunt at the end of Halloween season.
I guess I'll just have to stop buying or making more props...Ya Right!!!

Webkinz are toy stuffed animals similar to many other small plush toys, however, each Webkinz toy has an attached tag with a unique "Secret Code" printed on it that allows access to the "Webkinz World" website.

Because we are a corner house and we get a lot of wind howling through our porch area, the banner became a sail last year and started to rip. So this year I'm not taking any chances and built a wooden structure for more support.
The banner has two eye's cut out of the skull head where I've placed two 19" computer monitors that light up at night with fire burning eye's, on the second half of the banner I have a large window frame where I will be playing Halloween theme movies continuously throughout the evenings.
The inside of the porch area is very dull so far, I've covered up all the wood with burlap and camouflage netting to hide how ugly it looks. Now I have to come up with some kind of a theme haunted hallway.

My friend Brian Lashchuck from Beyond The Grave Productions made all these Tomb Stones from scratch.
The "Usher" obelisk is cast in durable, rigid urethane foam. This tall piece stands 7 feet and 1inch tall (85"). The obelisk separates into 2 inter-locking sections, the base and pedestal.
The "Harker" Obelisk is cast in durable, rigid urethane foam. This tall piece stands 8 feet 3 inches tall (99"). The obelisk separates into 3 inter-locking sections, the base, pedestal, and urn.
I can't wait to put them out in the Cemetery this year.
This is the new Thornhill Woods Haunted House Cemetery Grounds Keeper "Carl", I name him after a friend of my Carl Chalupa from Room 57 because they look alike.
This good looking fellow standing next to Carl is "Decayed", he's not in a good mood because Carl just freshly dug him up.
Both characters were made by my friend Brian Lashchuk from Beyond The Gave Productions.

The bench tops have gone on and we love it - so happy as we had to change from our original selection which is no longer in production and we were not 100% sure we had made the right choice but seems we have!
Bricking is nearly done and paining should be beginning any day!

It's that time of year again! Pumpkin season. When the leaves are falling, the air is crisp, and Halloween is right around the corner.
We enjoyed an outing today at a local Pumpkin patch "FORSYTHE FARM". The kid's were able to pick their own Pumpkins, go on a wagon ride, run through the corn maze, pet farm animals, and eat ginger bread cookies.
