    With local Murphy and Sonora town exteriors establishing the "Seven Brides For Seven Brothers" locations, the construction-paint-decorating departments made major alterations to existing sites; requiring removal of 6' high board fences, shrubs, awnings, existing signs, masking exterior adjacent buildings or parking lots. Asphalt covered parking areas were masked by being covered with dirt for the horses' action scenes, split rail fences added for an improved "Western" locale. Repainting location sight buildings, including roofs, with patina aging the exterior's "new paint" treatment. Specific scenarios required painting distant background grass fields and hills with green paint, specifically to cover the golden brown "dry" grass covered Northern California landscapes. Filming during July through October, usually all the exteriors turned golden brown due to lack of rain fall! The construction coordinator Larry Verne was required to build new roads, and bridges, to create sight access for production vehicles, in order to move the "company" into filming locations. Special balsa wood fences replaced existing corals for stunt stampeded action scenes. Ironically, cows do not follow stunt stampede directions, always stopping at the split rail fence! The cow wranglers, off and outside of camera range, had to "push" the cows through the fences! Building "new" OLD barns on ranch sites, which had to burn down during the plot, required extensive coordination with property owners, Sheriff and Fire Department staff, and local County Government filming permits.

    One show story line involved an airplane. The scenario involved a vintage biplane which crashes on a barren mountain top, the pilot jumping from the cockpit, off the bottom wing, onto the ground, running for safety from the burning biplane. A yellow vintage biplane was located for the aerial takeoff and flight photography, including the biplane's falling smoking descent towards the ground. An airplane salvage yard located in Fresno provided an airplane fuselage, two pairs of wings, and was trucked to the show's stage facility, where the construction crew prepared the airplane parts, to assemble on the remote mountain top location sight. Larry Verne, the construction coordinator, and his crew had to grade and build a road into the mountain top location for all the production vehicles to drive onto the top of the mountain hill sight location. The transportation captain provided a water reservoir tanker truck to put out the fire after the scene had been staged and photographed. The pilot owner of the hero vintage yellow biplane, valued (in 1982) at $75,000.00, had volunteered to let the construction crew prop and angle his vintage "hero yellow biplane", raising the tail section twelve feet in the air, allowing special effects to build a fire beneath the plane, for the filming sequence. The production designer, Hub Braden and Larry Verne did not trust the effects team. The assembled parts duplicated the biplane based upon photographs provided by the biplane owner. On the arrival of the "hero biplane", the construction crew copied the distinct biplane's tail section wings in plywood, attaching the pieces on sight. When the company began filming the crash and fire sequence, the director insisted on filming the pilot's escape jump three times. The brush which surrounded the crash sight started a slow burn. After the third retake, the water reservoir tanker truck's battery was dead, nor could the water tanker be moved to put out the fire underneath the "hero biplane" mock-up. The prop biplane completely burned up. The prop biplane was beyond salvage. Instead of a Fresno Air Salvage rental, the show bought the airplane parts.
