Modern secret hidden safe room

  • Published: 14 April 2012
  • This is a fairly unique custom installation, conceived by the owner, then designed and built in-house at AT Custom Cabinets(818)347-0740 in Canoga Park California. From the outside it appears to be a linen closet with adjustable shelves and typical amenity and function. It opens up to reveal a secret area where anything from a safe can be stored, or it could even be used as a hiding place if necessary. This home is very exclusive, and has already been rented to high profile celebrity, etc...who were never made aware of it and didnt figure it out despite living there for sometimes several months. Anyway, its pretty stealth, and was alot of fun testing the concept and mocking it up, and eventually building and installing it. Leave some comments, I'd love to hear what you guys think.

    That was awesome I would want much bigger room back but their great concept. If I were a celebrity I would want to hide some valuables in there maybe but not narcotics lol. Remember those dudes that just kicked in that one celeb's door and stole sheet from her. I suppose there's some sort of thing to keep the door closed once ur inside and ur safe? Like a 2x6. Also, I wonder if an HDE Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer Digital Temperature Gun can see if someone is in there or could see the heat loss in the space. An expert criminal would look for these types of cryptic spaces.

            I would live to see how the hinge works. This is exactly what I want to build but haven't figured out a hidden hinge.

                            so a very famous celebrity rented the place and you didn't bother to tell them that the safe room was there? wtf is the point of having it then you stupid fucking moron?

                                        As I sit here pondering dee-eeeeply about some of the comments made over the past 5 years that this video has been posted, and seeing how youtube has become a go to source for diy projects, real hands on solutions and inspiration for everything imaginable, recorded by individuals with incredible talent, sometimes for fame or fortune, but usually because it's a platform where anybody can become a source of information for the masses, like myself, I provided a video of a functional secret closet, the inspiration for creating it was to cover a design flaw. the video got 875K views over 5 years...I never expected that! I appreciate everyone who liked it, those who expressed interest in building plans for it, and even the ones who had critical things to say. the one that continues to bother me is the one where I shouldn't have shown it because now everyone knows it's there... ridiculous is the first word that comes to mind, as if I care if someone could find it is my second thought, and lastly, what would youtube be.... if the people who design, create, build and record their abilities, skills, tricks, trades, thoughts, and solutions, decided they would rather keep all that to themselves, and you jackass people that can't just learn from what you see instead of pointing out every mistake or paranoid scenario driven remark. I give zero fucks for those people. in times like these it's important to remember that critical remarks, especially the "baiting" kind of remarks, are designed to dumb down the masses by clogging the mind with relentless stupidity... so go ahead and make more retarded comments, as you can see I'm chiming in 3 years later in some cases to respond with a hearty fuck you, and a reminder to anyone else who has the attention span to read this far, congratulations to you people, hopefully you can agree that the haters should be strung up in a desert and eaten from the feet up by coyotes.... enjoy the video I promise to try harder on the production value next time I have a neat project like that.

                                                                          Is there a light in there?

                                                                          And when you knocked that shelf up at 00:17, then back down, was that part of the unlocking process? it would seem far too elaborate, but I wonder why you hit the shelf like that? You had been softly, softly till that point - really making an effort to close the doors gently, so maybe this was you breaking out, if you like.

Rarely do people find more than 8 their first time through it. I have a secret door in my old house. The buyer of the house doesn't know it's there and he has been in the house for 5 years. One day I may show him.
