Im not sure why willie said you would need access the lights from a panel on the side. They are can lights right?Unless he means something else
Looks like someone already mentioned the door swing. Its on the wrong side. The top is right. You will pick up the top with your right hand and it will be easier to open the door with your left hand
If you will watch the animation again, you will see that it may be necessary to do some wire hookup inside the box to be able to install more than one light. This will require making up connections within a J box. This is a whole lot easier to do if you can open a door and work on the box, and not try to do it all through one of the light holes. If he pre-wired everything, no problem. But I can see possible problems in this area for a first-time builder.... thus, the suggestion of a door or two on the back of the box.
Also, I would leave the door hinged on the bar. I would not try to install it on the drywall due to the probability of there being nothing behind the drywall to fasten to. This eventuality would require tearing into the wall to install framing inside the wall to mount the door to. A lot of work, and it necessitates patching and repainting the drywall... possibly the whole wall.
If there is a provision to hold the hatch up against the wall (a latch of some sort), it won't make any difference which hand you use to lift the hatch top or open the door.
