About the Project

After picking up the Evil Dead board game I decided to work on elevating it from board to scenery by building the cabin in the woods. As a die hard Evil dead fan I couldn't resist it. No one wants a board game when you can run around a 3D cabin. There is plenty of source material out there to recreate this classic movie set.

The board gives me a nice template for the nodey which I want to build to be the same size. The rustic look if the cabin should be forgiving when it comes to construction and the interior will be the hard bit. I'll be using foam board and cars for the main part but a bit of wood as well. Bellow are my first walls measured out to slit together. Once I got the templates done I'll look to details later.

There is plenty of research material on line for details on the cabin so a quick search have me lots of images. There is plenty of research material on line for details on the cabin so a quick search have me lots of images.
There is also lots of images of the characters but the board game interpretation is a bit different as it looks as if they only had the rights for Bruce.
