I want to put a five foot wide opening between two bedrooms so that we
can use both rooms together when alone in the house and then close the
doors when our children visit.
However, I cannot find suitable solid doors which provide the
necessary privacy and strength. Also concerned about whether this work
will need building regs approval - the wall is brick but not load
bearing. Could there be fire issues?
Any ideas welcome - I don't really want to make solid hardwood doors

I replaced all the doors and frames in the house a couple of years ago
with oak ones. Most of them were standard sizes, but I had a few
special requirements. One example was a double door arrangement such
as you describe, another was a bifold for a cupboard.
I looked around for a while but settled on a joinery firm in
Shrewsbury who specialise in European oak products.
They will manufacture to order and in other timbers as well. The
products are very solid and traditionally made to a high standard.
My kids are pretty noisy and heavier doors have certainly cut that
down quite effectively.
