Basement or Old Shed?
All this time I've been planning to jazz up my basement, while storing props in my (very) old shed, maybe I had it backwards?
To present the artifacts and history of the Witchfinders General in a semi-haunt semi-museum setting, in my basement, would require installing shelves and walls or at least several pegboards and tables; but to do the same in my (very) old shed might be a bit easier...and it is already dusty, webby, and covered in ivy...surrounded by tall trees, and would need to be accessed by a dark path through the woods. When I think of that it's a no-brainer and I must be stupid or something. When I say old, I mean part of it is constructed of found stones. Less than a century but probably 40, 50 years old at least.
On the other hand there's a steep hill to climb to get to this shack, without any sort of steps, and there is no electricity unless I want to run 100 feet or so of cord and split it all off from there.
I'm thinking it'd be easy to light a trail with some LED lanterns or whatever, but the possibility of neighborhood kids tripping or scraping their elbows on that (very woodsy) hill is a consideration.
Space and all other things being equal -- with no money or advertising or big deals -- would you spend your time making a safer trail to the weird old shack, or making your (very safe) basement look old and creepy?
