Pocket door- Tutorial Part 2

I started to work again to finish the pocket door.
As you can see the backside of the door is still not paint!
 
This is the "kitchen wall"... it's made of foam board (3mm).
I added some spacer (5mm foam board)
first to limit the space for the door and second
to make the wall more stable.
 
Here you can also see that I added a wood strip to limit the door vertically.
 
 
To increase the tendency to slide I glued some polythene foil to both walls.


 
Just to make sure that everything fits...
the opened door...

 
and closed...

 
This is the fiew from the kitchen...

 
and this from the hallway
 (well actually it's the view from the living room... but the door is still missing!)


This is just the first dry fit since I still have to install
the wiring for the lamps!
 
I hope that I described anything understandable :-)
 
Enjoy building your own pocket door!!!
 
See you soon
Lina
