FE...no i meant like where everyone does there prop building......kitchen table,
garage, dedacatied room for it, studio or where ever.
Just curious to see where everyone makes there awesome creations.
That's what I'm saying, props are built "on the fly" during the build of the Haunt it's self. My Haunt structure is 2x4's and plywood. The creation all happens at the same time.

*Sigh* My workshop(AKA garage) is a disaster area right now. My husband thinks he has to strow his RC stuff all over the place and leave the tools all nilly willy everywhere. I even made him his OWN area, but he leaves it in shambles:

He also keeps stealing my folding benches for his own purposes when he has plenty of his own bench and shelving space.
The kids' junk takes up a lot of my space too:


Most of the time I just use my folding benches and the driveway anways. Sometimes I even have help, even if he is just a slacker:

But my main workspace is my desk and the floor around it:


I have tons of cabinets that hold all of my paints, tape, liquid nails, caulk, latex, dryloc, painting supplies, spray paints, etc.. then the hand tool cabinet, the power tool cabinet, the fog machine cabinet... etc I like keeping everything behind the doors of the cabinets so it looks less cluttered. Unfortunately, Andy's a slob when it comes to the workspace. That drives me NUTS!

OMG....all these nice neat work areas. How do you guys build with everything that neat? This is how I do it...I start by setting up a table in the driveway to work on. Now the creative part comes into play. First, decide what you want to make, let's use a tombstone for an example, nice and easy. Crawl through an opening in the garage to find a piece of foam...take it outside. Crap, forgot the marker to draw the shape. Hmmmm, where is it? Can't find it so upstairs and empty the drawer till I find a marker that still works. Back downstairs and out into the driveway. Stencils...where are they...I know I have some around here somewhere. Upstairs into the hall closet, my desk, down into the garage...finally...forget it, I'll freehand it. Find the foam cutter. WOOOHOOOO, almost right where I left it last time. Turn it on...batteries are dead. BACK upstairs to find batteries (luckily this time I have some and don't have to run to Walmart). Back downstairs and to the driveway. Cut it out and now it's time to plus in the wood burning tool for the letters. Untie the extension cord octopus that's laying on the floor, find the wood burner and back to work. Sandpaper...that's another story. Paint...ah yes, I need paint, which is buried in here somewhere. And brushes...I just bought a pack now where are they? By now it's getting late and I have to start dinner so it's time to throw everything back inside the garage and start again tomorrow. It's a wonder ANYTHING ever gets built.

I do have pics of the mess that is my garage. I'll post them when I can find the camera! :D
