Barn doors
 
Well, the wife wanted sliding barn doors so off to lowes I went. $500 for the set at lowes, so that was a no go. A stack of 1x4s, some hardware and a sliding track kit later, I started building

next on my honey-do list is this same project!!

Part Timer 05-01-2017 08:28 AM

Got then in place last night. I did some adjusting, which was easy with the tracking kit I bought. Now it's the wife's turn to make them look pretty with paint and hardware. I'll report back in a couple days. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...dd06c00ca9.jpg

What track kit did you buy? How much ($) is that portion of the project?

Part Timer 05-01-2017 09:17 AM

I would say maybe $100-125 worth of wood and the track kit was only about $15.

I also bought some large hinges that i cut the actually hinge part off of, just leaving the large tab that we are going to put at the top. Basically to give it the appearance as though that is whats holding it up. Hard to explain, but once i get it done you will be able to see.

Very nice. Those are getting to be very popular.
Thank you for sharing.

My barndo build is progressing and sometime in the future I will have a quite a few doors to build, barn doors being some of them. Can't wait.

Looks great! Did you run the 1x4's on a joiner? They fit together really good, looks like.

Part Timer 05-01-2017 11:28 AM

The 1s I used were straight edge so it was pretty simple and quick to build with a tight fit.. My only complaint was the weight if each door. They're about 60lbs a peice. I was worried the track wouldn't hold them, but it seems to be alright

Never thought about the bypass door hanger gizmo. Great idea!

ShawnG 05-13-2017 01:45 PM

Nice! I thought about doing the burned look as well, but we decided with a stain. My wife is working on it today. Hopefully i can hang them and get a finished picture soon.

Very awesome job I have thought about doing this for our kitchens pantry, when you go to the pantry it has regular cabinet doors and when you open them you are kinda squeezed in between the doors and counter tops.

dhall 05-17-2017 07:24 AM

Very Nice!

ShawnG 05-17-2017 07:31 AM

Those turned out very nice!

We have 3 in our house bought the doors at surplus warehouse I believe they were $98 each and the railing kits on Amazon I think the 3 kits total price was $60 so any of you thinking about them that's the best price I found

can you look on your amazon account page and let us know what kits you bought. ALso what was the lumber surplus store tha tyou used.

Doors look great! Anyone do a single bathroom barn door with a lock mechanism? We are considering that for the kid's bath as the door opens in and with the skinny bath you have to close it behind you to get from sink to tub/commode.

I haven't seen any that lock. I think you could do a simply latching lock if you made the door a pocket door though. It would be a bit bigger project, but very diy doable. They sell kits for the pocket doors.
