May 1 2008Company Specializes In Secret Passages

secret-1.jpg

Creative Home Engineering is a firm that specializes in build secret passageways into your house. Which is pretty much the awesomest thing I've ever heard (besides hearing that American Gladiators was coming back, but before I saw one and realized it was a disaster). They make everything from the stairs you see here, to bookshelf doors and rotating fireplaces. Prices range from $5,000 to $250,000 depending on how ridiculous you want to get. You know, growing up I lived in a house with a little secret passage. It was in the upstairs hallway. I was always afraid to see where it led but one day I went for it and climbed in. I fell two stories into a hamper by the washing machine. It was awesome.

Several more hidden passageway pictures, and a link to the company's gallery, after the jump.

This reminds me of when I was adopted by that couple and grew up in a home where we had a secret passage behing the grandfather clock in the living to my bedroom. He was a big man....she called me Webster....I called her ma'am.......

I bet this sort of thing is very popular in Austria.

#2, too soon?

I have a secret passage in my pants.....

The bookcase and stairs are amazing, but the fireplace one is 100% impractical - you have to clear everything out of your fire place to use it? They should've just made the back of the fireplace a wall that swings out on a hinge instead of making it pivot in the middle.

Psychopaths, drug lords and paranoids rejoice!

I've always wanted a secret passageway in my house! This is the best thing I've heard all week, I'm seriously so excited. Now all I need is a house.

you forgot regular old sex fiends! they're rejoicing as well!!!! ....i've heard....

The house that I grew up in did actually have a secret passage way, but I hardly ever explored it because I'm scared of the dark.

I know, I'm a sissy.

I love the staircase! ;-)

@2 LOL

I SAID, I have a secret passage in my pants!

And where does it lead, Scott? To the land of twig and berries? Hehe.

I think we're all just trying to avoid thinking about your gaping a-hole Scott. But thanks for trying to drag us in.

LOVE IT!! gotta have one!

LOL, the company site says:
Hidden passageways Transcend the ordinary, Dramatically Increase Resale Value, Get Featured in Building Magazines, and make your home the Talk Of The Neighborhood.
OK, doesn't it sort of ruin a secret passageway to tell everyone in your neighborhood and have it featured in a magazine? Call me crazy...

I definitely want one of these so I can make a hidden room to grow my... umm... hydroponic tomatoes in. Sweet, sweet hydroponic tomatoes...

Part of my basement is suspended slab (under the garage). I am planning on building a secret bookcase door to go into this part. I am going to put my arcade there as well as a stripper pole.

I'll be starting on this project in a few months. I can't wait.

I have to say, i felt the same way about the American Gladiators....that obstacle course was a thousand times cooler when i was a kid.

Speaking of American Gladiators, that chick in the first photo looks like she can bench press granite boulders.

This is at least three years old

your penis is at least three years old

This sounds like a dangerous business to be in. How do you know your customer isn't going to off you after you complete the job?

Ok, this is fairly awesome.

I have one question though.

Say you are just coming out of your secret lab/drug den,
and your wife is coming down the stairs at the same time.

Does it just not work?
Or does it fling her lardy corpse into the attic?

If its not the latter then it is not what I'm looking for.

When I win the lottery, the first call I make will be to these people. Ok, second call. First call will be to a real estate agent. I doubt the landlord would appreciate the reconstruction of his property. Unimaginative and ungrateful f***er.

Sounds awesome is what it sounds!

OOOo how.... secret!!.....just make sure this doesnt leak out to Austria!..or at least sick sickophantics!!. >:O

Yay! I can be a serial killer too!

LOOKS LIKE THE FIREPLACE MY DADDY'S BUILDING IN THE BASEMENT...

dude, that thing u fell through wasnt a secret passage...its called a laundry shoot. they were built in multi level homes so you wouldnt have to carry laundry up and down the stairs. Probably explains why you landed by the washing machine :p
