Door hinges - Too bad builder is not in my area . I checked out epivots.com. I am trying to order the hinges for my cabinetry builder. May I know which hinge should I use for the secret door?

The hinge will vary depending on the size and weight of the unit you build. And the door swing needs to be considered. I would check with your builder on what he wants.

The hinges are on the sides. We order online at Epivots.com. Select based on weight of unit and your design.

Yes, you can have the doors open outward, we have done them that way too. I would budget $2,000 for a contractor to complete.

Measurements - Hi can you provide measurements? is the one side of the shelf stationary or also has an option to open? I want to put all my electronics ie: Wii, DVD, cable box, etc on one side and the other side decor and books. thanks

This secret door is custom made to hold items the size of books. If you were to use it for electronics you would want to measure your equipment and adjust accordingly. Also, this unit has two active doors making the opening into the mechanical/storage room bigger (approx 4' total opening)

Dear Builders
You are so kind and truthfully, smart about sharing information and creating good will. So many architects, designers ROTC. Post their photos and never respond to questions. They believe that enticing viewers with photos will get them business when in fact, not responding in any way to questions only engenders bad feelings and does not get them business. If you were in my area, New York, Conn., you would certainly get my business. I commend you on your good business sense.
