My Yard Haunts

My yard haunt may be small but I try to bring a level of artistry, lighting, and theatrics that will make Halloween memorable for our neighborhood. We average about 350 trick 'r treaters every year not counting their parents and friends who gather on our driveway. My decor has evolved over the years as I moved from store bought props to made-from-scratch props that I build. I've gone from working by myself to having a few good fiends who all pitch in, climb the roof, unload boxes, and make many trips to Home Depot.

The Early Years 2003-2008

Every story has a beginning and this is where my passion for Halloween began – in a haunted San Francisco flat and a suburban home next to a cemetery and down the street from the Winchester Mystery House! With just some simple decor here and there, this humble start led to what would become a major hobby ...and website ...and blog.
