Re: Door that opens like a van door?
The traditional way would be to use a pocket door, which slides inside the wall. Installing one would require rebuilding the the wall there.
You could also install a sliding door that hangs from an overhead track attached to the outside of the wall.
Another option is a bi-fold door, which folds in half and requires only half of the door-swing space.
And the ultra-cheap, really tacky version: hang a blanket or sheet over the opening.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
