How to Add a Secret Passage between Kids' Bedrooms:

Hidden passageways and secret rooms are perfect places for kids to read, play, and hang out.

The entrance to the secret room is "hidden" by what looks like a typical attic access door.  The height of the doors and room are designed exclusively for kids.

"Before" Floor Plan, The Hopkins by Frank Betz

The Hopkins, a Raleigh custom home floor plan by Frank Betz, was customized to add a secret passageway between the two upstairs Kids' Bedrooms.

"After" Floor Plan, The Sawyer by Stanton Homes

Here is what we modified.

First, we converted the Jack and Jill bathroom into a Buddy Bath with hallway access. This eliminated the need for additional doors inside the kids' bedrooms, and gave us a little more space for the secret room. 

Then, we added a second access door to the built in attic storage area, inside Bedroom 2.

Finally, we finished the secret room with drywall, carpet, and paint - making it part of the home.
