If you haven’t seen or heard by now, you must be hanging out under a rock somewhere…
We wanted to do Friday the 13th and the full moon that came along with it up in a big way. What did we do? We bought a building to be our permanent haunted house home.
No, not the building Stacy’s standing in front of in the picture! That would have been amazing but it would be way, way out of our price range…but, we did buy it there. We bought a 36′ x 72′ post frame kit from the Menards store in Reynoldsburg, Ohio yesterday. We take delivery in 2-4 weeks, once they have all the pieces parts. Then the real fun begins…(not)…assembly.
The real fun actually starts once it’s standing and electrified – haunt construction! We expect to have the building standing no later than the end of June, giving us three full months, plus, to construct the haunt of your nightmares. Pretty cool, eh?
For those of you keeping score at home, The building size is smaller than we intended. If you recall, we originally planned a 40′ x 120′ structure. That size would have fit nicely onto our property but it isn’t financially feasible for us to purchase and build out if we want to have a haunt open for you this year. We begged, borrowed, scrimped and saved to get this building. We’re planning temporary covered waiting for now and, with some profits earned this year reinvested, a permanent covered extension for waiting and maybe even a second building addition. That last part depends on getting lots of you and your friends out here for the 2016 season so we can scare the pants off of you.
If you’re willing to help with construction, once this kit arrives, please let us know. We can’t pay you for your labor but it will be a good time with great people who want to see this project through and we will feed you.
From all of us at Hagan’s House of Horrors to all of you who donated or helped in any other way whatsoever to make this purchase happen, we thank you!
