From afar, you probably wouldn’t even be able to tell that one of the side panels on this house is actually a secret door, but at the push of a button, it can be pushed open to reveal a secret entrance. Continue reading for a video and a short materials list.

Here’s what was used to make this door: Standard fiberglass exterior door, Red cedar (won’t rot, but lighter than pressure treated), Three 2x4s, ripped to 3″ to form a frame to offset the siding, mounted to the door using 3″ lag screws and fender washers (fender washers used to prevent the bolts from tearing through the fiberglass door), HardiPlank siding, Morning Industry Keypad and Remote Deadbolt, Ball Catch (holds the door shut without needing a turn-able doorknob), Richelieu 1-1/2-in x 1-1/2-in Satin Nickel Surface Cabinet Hinge (two), Hose bib (used as as the exterior door handle… no working plumbing connected), and an interior doorknob dummy knob (used for pulling the door open but doesn’t actually latch).
