Every man desires a creepy laboratory, a secret escape route, and a fire pole for young "wards" named Dick to mount -- but how the hell do you expect to access them, without a bookcase that opens upon pulling The Hardy Boys: The Witchmaster's Key? Dream-convert your pad with Creative Home Engineering
Tempe-based CRE's your one-stop for any spy-movie-style home accoutrements you've ever craved; just tell 'em what you want, and they'll ship it to be installed by your local handyman (whose knows-too-much offing will be a snap, thanks to the "murder dungeon" he just concealed). Their bread 'n' butter's the semi-custom opening bookcase: pick the size, finish, swing direction (in/out), whether or not it's automated, and activation method (book, clock, chess board, wine bottle, or fingerprint scanner -- sorry, Kevin Spacey from SE7EN). As for custom work, CRE can create anything you can imagine, from basement-bound slides to rotating fireplaces, and'll send out their own engineering crew for more elaborate jobs, like installing drawbridges. And alligators
Rounding out the offerings, CRE also offers a massive bulltetproof vault option on both the bookcase and their swing-open dresser, ideal for the man who's protecting nothing more than a short-shorted ward, but just doesn't have a lick of cave to store him.
