Default 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.

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