Pocket Door
I need to create a neat entrance from my basement laundry room to the adjacent furnace room so that I can service my furnace periodically. There is a furnace door or opening but it is clocked off by the water heater.

How do I frame and install a 24 inch pocket door ?

You can buy pocket door frames at Home Depot for $25. I think the frame acts as the 2x4 studs that would be there if the frame weren't. Install the track and door before the studs are covered.

I will come over and check that out but here in Toronto that sucker is $199 and the door about $85

Hello ClemKonan:
I would forget the pocket door and go with moving the water heater. It would be sooooo much cheaper and easier.

Hardware from sliding closet doors, 1x4's for studs======bingo pocket door. Just get a picture of framing and copy.
