I am currently building a log siding house in center florida. On each gable end I have an attic access to access the storage space in the trusses. I would like the access too also be finished with but w/ a concealed hinge or some other type of hinge or latch to open it.. just concealed though. i am attaching images to this post for reference

If someone has some concealed hinges or latches they can recommend I use, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Google “Matt Risinger hidden door,” without the quotes. He’s done lots of projects with concealed hinges and only uses Sugatsune. He’s also got some YouTube videos demonstrating them.

If there is room mount your hinges on inside for the door to swing in.

Have your say...
