Another thing that I will have to address (purely for cosmetic reasons) is that the walls inside this closet are bare cinder block, which looks ugly in my opinion. So I am considering ways to dress up the walls inside the closet. One idea that would be simple and cheap is to glue some white beadboard to the inside walls. I would only need two sheets and that would look significantly better than bare cinder block.

I would be inclined to put waferboard cedar closet lining inside. http://www.menards.com/main/paint/pa...-external-mcom

Never heard of this stuff. It looks like osb but I am assuming the chips are ceder instead of what ever recycled wood they normally use in osb? It doesn't look pretty, but it's cheap and if it smells good them I will give high consideration to using it!

You can special order your door from any lumber yard or big box store. The turn around time will be about 2 weeks in most cases.
You can order just the door or the entire pre-hung door assembly.
Also, I think you can safely cut an 18" door down to your exact fit.
The new doors have thin sides, but there is enough room to trim for your fit.
I would take the old door when making the order so your salesman will have no excuses on getting it right.

It does have the appearance of osb but they use eastern cedar chips and the stuff is very aeromatic.

There isn't a Bartens in my area so I don't know. What I bought recently I got at McCoys Building Center. I think the farthest they are located is in central Arkansas. All you can do is call around and see if you can order it and hope you don't have to order a 50 sheet minimum.
