Here is a door system I am really proud of. This is a set of 4 4o x 8o knotty pine doors on track. The opening is 16’ wide. The house has a very open back floor plan with a grand patio, built for entertaining. So this idea was hatched to close of the kitchen when having a gathering in the main space. The track is sourced from conference panel hardware. These are top rollers, with the bottom guides set in a pine threshold. The total scope of work included re-framing the entire space and adding a set of Glu lam beams to carry the added weight of the doors and a set of windows and dormers above, not seen in the photo. The doors are 1 3/8 knotty pine with 3/4 panels. Very fun to build these large doors. Will be posting a set of 4/6×10/0 chasing sliders as well as soon as I can get permission!! The kitchen you see and all the principle carpentry/cabinetry was me and my firm in this house. Thanks for looking.
