A couple of questions.
What is the theme of your haunt? This may vary what or how you want to build your facade.
Do the door and window have to be operational (working)?
How tall or high do you want to go?

Many years ago, at a major local amusement park, we built a rather large structure that used commercial scaffolding as the basic framework, with a large crypt/mausoleum on one side, and the undertaker's on the other side.
We used 1/4" plywood with foamcore facing, sculpted to look like stonework on one side, and clapboard siding on the other. We ran eyebolts through the wood, and bungee cords from eye to eye on the opposing sides. You could use cable, pipe clamps or any of a number of other fasteners to hold the walls.
The scaffolding gave a super solid base, and we were able to build it a couple stories tall without much effort. and because of the bungee cords and brackets, we could build this in a major hurry, and with no specialized tools.
The construction method is very easy to do, but the sections are 10' wide by 5' tall and deep. They can be stacked, and or extended to meet almost any need, and the scaffolding can be rented fairly cheaply.
