Can we use this photo for a modern architecture post? - Hi, I'm the editor of Dallasmoderns.com and I was wondering if you would give me permission to use this image for a post about modern hidden rooms. Wonderful Craftmanship!

Hi, Briggs. That would be fine. Just be sure to credit the photographer, Ben Benschneider, and us at deforestarchitects.com. As it happens, we were recently contacted about doing a project in Texas so maybe our paths will cross in person one of these days. John DeForest

The roof is a standing seem metal from Taylor Metal in WA. Similar profiles are available from most metal roofing suppliers.

“And no, under your mattress or at the bottom of your sock drawer isn’t going to cut it.” — Mitchell ParkerI remember when my family was searching for a home outside of Boston in the late ‘80s; my father had his eye out for a bookcase that opened to a secret room like his aunt had had in her 200-year-old colonial home when he was a boy. I always thought of it as a feature found in an older home, but today’s designers are embracing this Murder Mystery Night kind of feature. Parker leads us through the options and the costs and time required to conceal a secret room with a bookshelf.Full story: How to Create a Secret Doorway Behind a Bookcase
