Sliding Doors with specialty Track.

While we like the layout of the rooms in our home, we did not have a room on the main floor that could be closed off from the rest of the house.  This meant that one of us could not read or listen to music while the other one of us watched TV or was carrying on a conversation.  The living room has double doors entering from the front hallway but had no doors between the living room and the dining room 5’ opening.

We had often thought about putting in pocket doors but hesitated because we knew it would be a fairly major project and would create quite a mess.  Then we thought about creating a wooden frame against the dining room wall that would allow us to hang the pocket doors in the dining room.

We approached Dmitri Demas to build the frame and he found that there is actually a commercial track system that accomplishes exactly that.  He ordered the system and the doors that matched the existing doors to the front hall.  We matched the trim to what is in the kitchen.  It looks like the doors and woodwork have been there since the beginning.

With the doors closed, the room is quite quiet now even with noise being made in the kitchen or from the TV.  As a side benefit, we have an attractive shelf to safely display our special plates.
