    Question 11 months ago on Step 3

    How do you cover up the hole while maintaining the distance for redstone activation? Two blocks is too deep, and one block doesn't allow me to cover it up without interfering with the pistons and glass blocks.

    A picture I forgot to add. When you make the hole, make sure to place Redstone on all the blocks inside the hole and on the one block deep hole on either side.

    I just made this with out the Redstone. You need 4 Sticky Pistons, 4 glass. 1: place the pistons the way he did (just really wide for a double door). 2; place the glass on the sticky part on both sides. 3: cover the glass . 4: then place two levers on the top pistons .
    Then you got your sliding glass door you just can’t close it from the outside so leave it open when you’re outside...or else you’ll be trapped outside

    In step 2 you need to make sure you covered the ground in red stone. Otherwise i don't know what else would be going wrong, sorry for the inconvenience and i hope this helped :D
