Sliding Glass Door in a Pocket?

Recommended Posts

Totally a custom installation.  Chief won't do a 2 panel Pocket Door where both slide to the same side. and it also won't do a Sliding Door where both Panels slide into a pocket.

 

The way I would do it would be to use a 2 Panel Pocket Door with a Pocket on each side.  The Doors would meet at the center.

I just have to ask - is that detail suggesting that the newly framed (furred) wall to contain the pocket actual abruptly ends to the right?   When I looked at that detail I couldn't understand why someone would do that.  how would that edge be finished?

Just like any corner on a siding clad wall, with inside & outside corner molding.

Or did you prefer a miter wall segment. :)  Just kidding.

 

I suppose you could extend that new wall 30 more feet to smooth things out.

But this old farm house is quite ragged as it is. Why the pocket slider I have no idea, kinda crazy if you ask me.

I have never seen the house in person, just a few photo's. The GC gave me a hand drawn remodel plan.

He did use a ruler though.

Interesting...  i would have pushed for just rebuilding the existing wall, or furring the inside instead - but hey, good luck with it.
