A Built-In Scavenger Hunt

12puzzle_4
When this article was first published in the NY Times last summer, I thought this was one of the coolest things I'd ever seen. The original request by the owner was that the designer "hide" a poem he had written for his wife and kids somewhere in the home. The text of the poem is written behind the doors above, but to open them, the family had to solve a multi-step puzzle that they discovered when one of the kid's friends noticed a code hidden in a decorative panel.

I think this guy should win the award for coolest Dad ever. My dad was always hiding stuff around the house too, but I think it was more out of absent mindedness than anything else :)
