This Company Will Fill Your Home up With Hidden Passages and Trick Doors


When one man was trying to get a false door installed in his home a la Scooby Doo, he was finding it hard to actually find a company that would make one. So he decided to build it himself.

It's hard to deny just how cool it is to have a hidden or false door in your home that leads to a secret passageway and, ideally, your own lair.

No, I'm not talking about being some kind of criminal mastermind or hero who stalks through the night looking for baddies to bash. (although both are pretty cool options) I'm talking about the appeal of just having your own secret space in your home. Not only do you have your own secret space, but you could very well be the only one who knows how to access it because the entrance will look like some innocuous home fixture.

At least I think it'd be cool to have that in my house, and so did Steve Humble, the founder of Creative Home Engineering. When he kept hitting a dead end with contractors who couldn't fashion him the false door of his dreams, he decided that he'd up and make it too.

Then he had an idea: he couldn't be the only one that wanted this stuff in his house, which is why he launched CHE in the first place.
