I loved the laundry cabinet featured at http://www.thisoldhouse.com/toh/photos/0,,20454596_20894730,00.html but when I sopke with Rochler and added up all the hardware they said I'd need, it came out to $180---- PER DOOR!! Is this right?

    My outside view of the room/link you shared -they are not your normal washer and dryer - they are built in style and are much smaller both in height and depth over what we all see in the main stream. -further support of this, note there are counter tops over top. this requires serious consideration to where your shutoff valves are -all of these things considered, if the above variables are not an issue we can address the "pocket doors" ... the panels and the actual doors themselves can vary greatly in cost (dependent on wood/stain/paint/etc). They could range anywhere from $50-200 per section. Noting this is not "stock sizes" - they need to be custom made for your application .... the "pocket door hardware" this again varies. a) on clearance b) on quality. This is holding up a big door, so cheap hardware would be a poor choice. Pocket door hardware .. (doors slide in vs. swinging out) is not cheap ... Id estimate these to range $75-150/per door. Crazy right? I thought $180 per door was rather economical.
