These sliding doors made a huge difference in being able to get the lawnmower out of the shed. The old doors had hinges and blocked the narrow walkway when they were open. I used outdoor torqx drive screws throughout. I routed edge joins on the boards and pocket screws to put the frame together. sherman williams finish.

I can see you solved that space problem nicely .
Just great looking doors and those TORX drive screws are just so superior to anything else .
I get my screws from work (PAM SCREWS ) and use them almost exclusively .
What kind of track and door seals did you use ?

Great solution, they should last for a long time.

Thanks for the kind comments. I had fun building them, and then when I raised the floor with concrete The doors were completely disassembled and rebuilt 3” shorter, easy to do when done with screws.
