attic bookshelves secret access

Found out that a squirrel had gained access to an area of the attic that I was unable to access. Decided I didn't want an obvious door on that wall. Built and installed five sets of bookshelves, one of which sits on a set of hinges and roller allowing it to swing open, fully loaded, to gain access to the attic crawl space.

  • Hi, I like the idea. I was thinking of using wheels to pull out but like yours better. Would you happen to have a plan or blueprint for this project that you would like to share? Thanks, Leonard

  • Can you talk about the hinge system you built? This is exactly what I need to do.
