    I've always wanted a hidden room or passage in my house since i was a child. I believe it would be worth the investment. Here are some reasons for having a hidden room in your house: there neat, a place to hide your valuables, adds resale value to your home, could be used as a panic room, could have your own bat cave lol. Here is a company that specializes in designing, and building secret rooms. Go to the videos section on their site, and watch the discovery video. http://hiddenpassageway.com/

    hi cutting edgetech,

    Wow, that's a great link! I wonder how fun it would be to come up with some of the most clever schemes regarding hidden passageways/doors, closets? Wonder if they have a "Narnia" special line of furniture? :) They could consult with magicians for ideas also for some great optical illusions in the secure furniture too... :)

    Btw, your post reminds me somewhat of the famous Winchester House:

    http://www.winchestermysteryhouse.com/

    with all it's hidden passageways and such where a lot do not go actually anywhere, door within doors that are different sizes, dropoffs, weird stairwells, etc. Maybe you or other Wilder members have seen/heard of this... :)

    Also, I used to have a book showing all kinds of optical illusions during wartime to foil the enemy (such as aircraft that think they are looking at a landscape or bombed out town where in reality its a giant mesh tarp with drawings on it to be viewed from the sky) inflatable tanks, etc.

    You can find the Idea in old B movies from the "1940" to "1970". Ostensibly converted stuff home made for the purpose, such as a hidden room used as a safe house in the underground railroad in the old slave days, or tunnels from the tong-wars in chinatown in the US. Left over secret passages and rooms called speakeasies from prohibition days.
