Alexandra Zimmerman. hidden door. September 18th , 2018.
Some of the books I read told about using these secret rooms for nefarious purposes, others told about the man of the house getting away from rooms that were overflowing with unwanted guests. Some of the rooms were used as war rooms where spies put maps on the table to plot how to get information or rescue hostages. And some of the secret rooms were used for men who wanted a place to drink port and play cards. No one ever said if there was anyone who was allowed to clean these hidden rooms. Even though I've never had a reason to have my own hidden room with secret panels to access them, they still hold a fascination for me. I guess some things you never outgrow, no matter how old you are.
If you're looking for another bedroom, you may be able to build your own by finishing off a basement that has an exposed window, or by converting the space above your garage. You can do this work yourself if you're handy, or contract it out to a professional. Regardless, make sure to follow all local code and regulations. And don't worry too much about planning where you want the new room, as it really isn't that hard. It's not like you're drawing up log house plans or something. Just think about the dimensions of the room, where you want the door and closet, and where the window should be in the room. Put some tape on the floor to show where the walls would go and try to envision what it would look like when it's done.
Another preferred way to have an undetectable hidden room is by creating it in the basement of your house. In most houses, the presence of the basement can go easily unnoticed. You can create an entrance to the basement from a doorway created in the floor of the ground floor.
