The instructions with that came with the Johnson Pocket Door Kit were terrible. We ended up checking the internet for answers. We did have to frame it up first, because there was no door before.

Now it's time to install the jambs - which didn't come with the kit. We are not carpenters, but we're working on it. We want to make this house better than pre-hurricane.

Right now we are studying Daryl in Nanoose's bathroom pocket door. Our door is in the corner and additional trim will take away from the opening. Hmmmm... the pitfalls of not being a carpenter. We do like the way Daryl finished off his door.

The pocket door kit sold at Lowe’s 1500 series really isn't for 2X4 framing. The wall will be thicker. This is fine with us because our objective was to create a sound and visual barrier from the laundry room to the kitchen.

Thank you everyone who posts to this site. We truly wouldn't be doing this without you. There aren't enough library books to teach us.

Here are a few pictures.
