My wife wanted to hide the furnace and water heater. I wanted total access for ease of repairs when needed. So I made some really big barn doors.
This is what she wanted to hide. I was in process of installing the tankless water when the photo was taken.
In process of making the doors. The 1 x 8 pine was made into shiplap on the router prior to assembly.
I made 2 of these. I don’t remember off hand the exact dimensions, but there about 5 ft wide and almost 9 ft tall.
Thats after first hanging them. I used legit barn-door hardware for the track and trolleys. The beam the track is mounted to, I added for the purpose. And I used the same through bolts to mount the track hangers on either side of the beam
Made a bottom track from construction lumber cut to height.
Then I encased the track in sheet metal.
Then added some door handles made from 1/2” threaded steel pipe.
