Sets you've built?

I don't know if anyone has built any sets, but I would sure like to see them. More or less I'd like to see ones that were made very cheaply. I find it intresting.

We built a confession booth for our short film At Confession, using materials found at home depot for a few hundred dollars:

I just recently completed my most recent short and I built 4 sets... one alien hotel room, a cemetary, a mysterious clone room, and an L shaped industrial hallway.

I did these for darn near NOTHING!

Basically -- go buy cheap 1x3's in eight foot lengths from home depo and get 1/8th inch doorskin or luan. Build your flats like a box with one support right in the middle.

Also, I will have my webpage up soon so you can check it all out.
