Janet Pizaro on Apr 25, 2018not sure see if this will give you a idea.https://www.houzz.com/ideabooks/25360748/list/make-your-own-barn-style-door-in-any-size-you-needHelpful Reply
Laura Cooper on Apr 25, 2018It's all about the hardware. Try to estimate the weight of the door, then shop your hardware for that weight adding in a some extra for the additional forces when you move it. You may need to look at industrial hardwareHelpful Reply
Teacup8885 on Apr 25, 2018Do you have room to make 2 slide apart doors, just so not so heavy??Helpful Reply
Lisas on Apr 25, 2018are you planning on doing a barn door on a slider rail? or something that swings in/out on hinges? you may want to put in some kind of transom rather than a 108" door.jujst as an idea- it will make the door seem less overwhelming, and let in lightHelpful Reply
Ruthanne Parker on Apr 25, 2018We really don't have enough space on the other side without it being in the way. Can you think of another material we could use that would not be as heavy?Helpful Reply
