If you install a pre-hung door unit........ I hope you have an egress (escape) window: less than 44" off floor to opening- 20" wide x 41"high--- 34"wide x 24"high, minimum 5.7 square feet opening. Otherwise, we helped you build a fire trap. Unless it's open on the top cathedral area. Be safe, G

A folding door that folds into itself is called an accordion door. Check Home Depot.

The type of door you are looking for is called an accordion door. They are definetly inexpensive and are at Menards, Home Depot, etc. I used to work at Menards in Millwork so I know they are there for sure. Its less than a hundred dollars and can come in a variety of colors. They have some standard colors and sizes but some odd sizes you may have to order for a bit more money. But, the sizes they have in stock are usually enough to cover the opening that you are looking to close off.
