Don't forget to vote for me in the hidden compartments contest.

Step 1: Cut the Hole

Find the space you want to put it (i put mine in the side of the drop down* in my basement), then trace the vent cover. Use the Sheetrock saw to cut the hole.

*what i mean by a drop down is where the duct work for your house runs.

Step 2: Cut the Box

You need to cut the box to fit inside the hole, just to keep everything together.

Step 3: Place the Vent Cover in the Hole

Place the vent cover in the hole, after you've stashed everything, secure the vent cover with the Sheetrock screws.


Now that you've finished, go vote for me in the secret doors and compartments contest.
