Two shuttered doors mean we're closed. The left shutter being open and "HACK" or a glider being visible means we're open, make some noise, ring the doorbell, knock on the door, or just try to open it, whatever works. The exact location of the door (relative to neighbor shutters) can be seen on the photo below.
