Secret Trap Door

Kim Ludy (of Trampoline) must be the coolest mom ever! She and her husband added a trapdoor from her son's closet to an attic play space. This is not your average trapdoor. The crafty couple customized a dog door by adding a peephole. As a child I remember watching Webster and dreaming of the day when I could have secret rooms of my own...maybe that was my first motivation to become an architect. Now I just need to figure out how to work a trapdoor into our house.

Safety tips: Make sure the door is large enough to not get stuck in. It's also a good idea to have another access for adults. You don't want you children to get locked in their secret play space...that would not make for fond childhood memories.

  1. We have actually been planning a trapdoor (or "secret passageway", as the kids call it), but were not sure how to go about it. The dog door idea is brilliant!
