you can always open a wall and reframe it for a pocket door, as shown throughout this article. When planning the project, keep in mind the various application options, particularly if installing two doors. For example: Will two doors butt together in the mid- dle of the opening? Or will they be built as bypass doors that slide past each other on sepa- rate tracks? Your answer will determine the frame kit you need.
First install the header of the rough opening, which must allow for the height of the door plus room for the pocket-door header that contains the door track.
Remove the floor plate for the rough opening and construct a new door frame according to the kit’s instructions.
New studs form the side jambs of the opening.
