Unique Interior Barn Door

Interior barn door – Barn door is good for exterior like garage door. But, it can apply in the interior. It look awesome that my opinion about barn door. For me, if I have own house, I will use barn door in the some interior door. Whatever my opinion, this article will guide you to make barn door rail, especially for interior. The rail should measure a little more than double the door, in this case it will be left at 150 cm. The support where the rail will be hung is a 2×4 “board, and it should measure the same of the rail, or in the particular case that gives the space can be left longer, everything depends on the place where it will be fixed.

This table is cut with the circular saw. Paint the 2×4 “board cut with the same color that was chosen for the door.  The cut board will be fixed at a height of 206 cm from the floor. This measurement is obtained by adding the height of the interior barn door which in this case is 2 meter plus 6 cm which is the distance that is needed for the rail and the mounting plate to enter. Once the height is defined, holes are drilled in the board, 4 are evenly distributed, the support is presented, the level is leveled, and holes are drilled to the wall with a concrete drill. Finally fix the support with studs nails that are hammered until the billet is flush, then screw.

Make a 12 mm recess in the bottom edge of the door, just on its axis. This is done with the router and it is necessary for it to be slid by a guide that we will put on the ground. To hang the door on the rail the mounting plates must be fixed to the upper edge of the door, they go to 5 cm from each edge. Make the final assembly by inserting at each end of the rail a cart with wheels and a brake, making sure these brakes are facing inwards. With the mounting plates that are in the interior barn door, hang it on the trolleys. This adjustment must be done with a wrench.
