If you support that with wood slats, that should work too.
hmmm... not a bad idea with the window but I'm not sure it would look good if the elevator was bigger than the mirror... because if anything the shaft should be bigger than the elevator itself. But then again maybe they wouldn't really notice the size difference because the elevator won't be directly on top of the box (in order not to break the mirrors)
Oh, and I remember a while ago someone talking about using plexiglass with I think the window shrink wrap stuff that gives the illusion of a 2 way mirror.... can anyone confirm this or know what I'm talking about. I know I can get mirrors half off b/c I just tell them that the haunts for charity, but if I do I'd probably need to get a really thin version to keep the price reasonable.
