How to Build a Secret Passage

Home Builder with Stanton Homes - New Home Builder

Secret Rooms for Kids: 

Hidden passageways and secret rooms are perfect places for kids to read, play, and hang out.

The entrance to this secret passage is "hidden" by what looks like a typical attic access door.  The height of the doors and room are designed exclusively for kids.  


Before and After Floor Plans - How to Create a Secret Room:

See how you can add a secret passage to your Raleigh custom home, in these before and after floor plan images.

The "Before" Floor Plan - Two Separate Bedrooms

The Hopkins, a Raleigh floor plan by Frank Betz, was customized to add a secret passageway between the two upstairs Kids' Bedrooms.

The "After" Floor Plan, Secret Passage Between the Bedrooms

Here is what we modified.

First, we converted the Jack and Jill bathroom into a Buddy Bath with hallway access. This eliminated the need for additional doors inside the kids' bedrooms, and gave us a little more space for the secret room. 

Then, we added a second access door to the built in attic storage area, inside Bedroom 2.

Finally, we finished the secret room with drywall, carpet, and paint - making it part of the home.
