Do you want to use the door slabs that you have or are you planning to buy new.
Most often the rough opening will be 1 1/5" to low and 3/4 to narrow for a standard door of the same size.

do you mean you want to hang your bi-fold like a french door? so it folds but then swings open?

try looking at folding shutters?

Thanks for that link Jniter!
I have used Johnson hardware for various applications over the years
but have not see this style. Kind of a best of both worlds thing.
