Tell us about yourself!
i made a new version of this last halloween that has twists and turns. We have plans for an even longer more in depth one this year!
When i took ours apart the rot and wetness was all over. I am sure the foam was waterlogged as well. Previous to this we had replaced all the cables and the main cable as well. The new roof probably weighs less than the original roof. We did use the thick wood for the sides and front/back to ensure a long life on the roof and provide stability for the rest of it. Using the new foam, and the 2x2's reduced the weight and the old metal roof weighs more than the TPO material. Maybe you can add a brace to the bottom of each of the uprights under the frame to keep them from going down under the weight. We have used this for 3 years now and it is still holding up nicely!
plus i can't figure out how you would add 2 more. We have 4 lifts one in each corner and ours attach to the side boards by a bolt that goes through the entire system from outside the TPO to the metal rail.
I made a newer version that winds around an area too for like a swamp!!!

We made this the weekend before Halloween and wanted to make sure we had something creepy for the kids to walk over. Had I made it earlier in the month, sound would totally have been added. The motion trigger idea is great!!
looking at a western haunt this year and home depot did a similar thing but not motion activated. going to get my hands on a few more skulls and so I will attempt this as I am pretty good with LEDs!! Great project!!
I am doing a western theme next year and plan on having a gallows, I was going to put in the back of the yard sorta hidden but I might just have to do this project!! Thanks!! I don't do air props so a motor driven is more my style!!
Thanks!! Just wait till you see my Western Town next year!! follow along on FB on Scare Hollow and youtube as well
Right!!! it looks amazing!!! Yeah the hearse was fun to build and only took me about 1 hour to put together this year. I have an instructable on how to make that too.
the fog would still go to the path of least resistance which would be down the length of the pallets. it would seep out of any of the gaps first and then the bulk would travel down the pallets. I assume you mean take a pallet and cut it in half leaving one end board the middle board. They actually make pallets that are narrower than standard ones and i get them at my work all the time. See the pallets on the right, those are only about 28" wide i think, and 48" long.
Thank you, I love Halloween and it keeps me creative!!!
