Frequently Asked Questions

Why don't you show more pictures?

There are three main components to our services: expert knowledge, precision craftsmanship, and discretion. Since most of our products are used for the protection of valuables it's essential that we protect both our techniques and the confidentiality of our customers. It's not much of a secret if we publish all the details on the internet.

What if I don't want a safe but I would like a secret room?

No problem. Most people are interested in our services because they have valuables to protect. For those of you like myself who grew up watching Scooby Doo and want a secret room just for the fun of it, we are happy to accommodate.

What part of the country does Hidden Spaces work in?

Hidden Spaces is based outside of Seattle, Washington. We primarly service the Puget Sound region but can handle jobs anywhere in Washington and as far South as Portland. We will consider jobs farther away on a case by case basis. If you are outside of Washington and are looking for a vault or a secret drawer check out our affiliates page for someone in your area.

Do I need to be remodeling or building a new home or do you install into existing homes?

Most of our work is done within existing construction, but if you are building a new home or remodeling, let us know. New construction offers additional opportunities for some really ingenious hides.

I'm ready to go, what now?

The first step is to give me a call, so I can answer any questions and we can discuss your needs and concerns. Then, if this sounds like the right thing for you, I'll come out to your home or office and conduct a free survey for possible installation locations. In most cases there will be several possible locations, each requiring a different hiding technique. We'll discuss your options and choose which is right for you.

The last step is the installation. The details vary greatly, but whether you're getting a secret drawer or a walk-in vault, the same general steps are followed. You'll give me a deposit to start the work, and we'll set up a time for the actual installation. I'll get all the preparation work done, and then at the appointed time I'll return and complete the installation.

I keep opening my secret compartment even though I don't need anything in it. Is this a problem?

No need to worry. We find the inability to stop opening and closing your secret compartment is quite common in new owners. You'll get used to it eventually. Enjoy.

The sooner you call, the sooner you'll be amazed.
