Sara Nainzadeh bought her apartment in 2009, and she also built a secret room behind a bookcase. The room is hidden to the naked eye and it cost her $25,000 to build.

Creative Home Engineering offers different kinds of hidden doors. They hide rooms behind staircases and fireplaces. Nainzadeh wanted a bookshelf.

They built it in their own workshop in Arizona. It's custom made to fit her apartment, and was installed by their own team.

Her version cost $25,000. This is what it looks like in action.

"I want to say about 99% of the people I told that I was doing this thought I was insane," Nainzadeh said. "I was like, ‘I don’t care. I’m doing to do it.'"

She uses it for work. The inside is a pretty normal office space.

And it's for hanging out. There's a couch, and one wall is covered in the wallpaper she grew up with.

She keeps a portrait of her dog, Fellini.

If she wants to get out from inside, she has to press this button on the door.

But there's also another exit.

It leads to a small bathroom with a washer and dryer.

From there, she can go back to her living room.

When the living room door is closed, it looks like just another wooden panel in the wall. Nainzadeh can't get back in that way — she has to go back to the bookshelf in her bedroom.

To open the bookcase door, you have to tilt "A Light in the Attic" by Shel Silverstein.

"I thought it was ironic," Nainzadeh said. "A light in the attic. It’s like a secret room. You can’t really see that there’s a secret light behind it, or a room there."

Creative Home Engineering hid a sensor inside.

The sensor tells a magnet behind the bookshelf to unlatch, swinging it open.

"Sometimes I ask people to pick or guess," Nainzadeh said. “They don’t realize it’s Shel Silverstein. They think it’s a Stephen King book."

Living with a secret door poses unique problems. Only Creative Home Engineering can do repairs. But they're very responsive.

“When my housekeeper comes, sometimes I’ll leave one of the doors open so she knows how to get in there," Nainzadeh said.

Because it's made of wood, the door expands and contracts depending on the temperature. It can get stuck.

To fix that, she can take some books off. There's also a clever bolt hidden underneath the bookcase. Wrenching it pulls the door closer or farther from its hinge, which can make it unstuck.

Nainzadeh loves showing the room off to her friends. “There’s a joke now that it’s not a secret room," she said. "Everyone knows about it. Cat’s out of the bag.”

Because of her apartment's shape, Nainzadeh's visitors don't always realize there's a secret room just beyond the closet.

“If I’m planning on getting a new place, I definitely would want to get another one," Nainzadeh said. "I love my secret room."

Not a secret. What's the point if you tell the whole world.

More like a kid's toy than a secret room. Ask a narcotics policeman who does busts for examples of most creative secret rooms where criminals produce and store large amounts of drugs. At least dozens of those near every bigger town. This room they'd bust in with their eyes closed after 10 seconds :)
