Since I like to build things on my own withouth purchasing it finished I try to build a pocket door from cardboard and wood strips.
First, I build a "frame" for the door from wood strips in the same sice as the cutaway for the door in the wall of the Beacon Hill.
Remember that there should be enough space around the "door" which is necessary for the working mechanism.
The design you choose for your door is up to you :-)
I cut some door panels from cardboard
and glued them to the pocket door.
And I added an additional wood strip at the brink of the door to hide the different layers of wood and cardboard.
This is the side facing the hallway of the BH
And this is the side of the pocket door facing the kitchen of the BH.
I also added card baord to clear the difference between the white cardboard and the wood strips of the "door".
Now each structure is on the same level.
Here you can see the first layer of paint on my "pocket door".
Here I stopped working because we spend the weekend in Rome/ Italy and I didn't have time for my minis.
However, I'm not sure if the pocket door will work...
We will see.... :)
See you soon,
