To the left of the existing door is a closet which opens out to the hallway. I am thinking of closing that closet, and make it accessible from the bathroom instead as a linen closet. This will mean the space covered by the current closet door will be available, and there is no plumbing or electrical that run through it.
Will this be a good use of a pocket door?
I have been looking at various web sites on installation of pocket doors and it does not seem too complicated. Just wondering what would be the cost difference between a normal swing door versus a pocket door (door itself + specialty hardware + installation), is it double, triple or even more?
Also, is it possible to do rough framing for the door before I know exactly what brand of pocket door I will buy? I know I want a 30" wide door and 80" tall, so I think I need to frame 61" W and 85" H, I believe...hope it works.
