For those who are creating double-doors, divide your width measurement to determined the width of each individual door.
Next, measure how tall you want your doors to be, and take into account about an inch for space between the door and floor.
Once you know how many pieces of wood you plan to use for each door, mark each individual piece by the height measurement you took before.
If you plan to use the sliding door system you will need to keep into account where the stud is that the track will be mounted to, as well as the length of the sliders. Flip over your door and repeat these steps, positioning your top and bottom wood at the same measurement. Next, take a protractor and measure the angle that you will have to cut your wood, and mark the angle straight across with a pencil. When building your doors, when you measure the height you need to take into account how much space you want separated from the bottom of the floor. Hi Kristen, there’s a link in the post for how we created the hardware for the doors.
Step 6: Get the Cabot pre-stain wood conditioner and your foam brushes and quickly do a coat following manufacturers instructions.

Awesome door, going to gather all materials to make one for a downstairs office converted into a bedroom.
Any way, now that we have the top door in addition with the baby gate, it provides some additional privacy for the living room. Next, I laid the top and bottom rails face down on the table with the two back side stiles placed at each end, forming the frame of the door.  I started with one screw at each corner and made sure that the frame was square while drilling. Before I assembled the rest of the pieces, I lightly sanded the edges with a sanding block to take off any little sharp pieces of wood sticking out and made sure that all the back stiles fit in the frame.


On top of the door I added a ball door catch, similar to what you would see on a bedroom closet door.  This helps the door stay closed without needing a latch. We wanted a simple handle and latch that so we could lock the door by drilling a hole into the door frame. In order to open the full door together, I added a small piece of molding on top of the baby gate to push the upper door open at the same time as you opened the bottom gate.
I supplied a client with doorhardware, they sent me a picture of your door, it looks great. It isn’t air tight, so you would need to modify it and maybe add another layer of wood and make sure whatever wood you use is sealed and can handle the heat and elements that a front door would have to handle. When my dad was here, we built a 6 ft wide by 7 foot tall barn door to slide over the office opening in the entry way. After attaching the hardware, we were ready to hang it last night and with some help from family (it's a very, very heavy door) we managed to get it on the wall - and I sang praises when that heavy door didn't rip the hardware right off the wall! Make sure if you are creating these doors to go along with the sliding track that there is enough room for them to open. Remember this will probably be a bit less or a bit more than the measurement you took, since it’s determined by the amount of wood you are using.
This is to create extra support to hang your doors if you are hanging them from the sliding track.
Lay an 8 ft piece of 1×4 diagonally across your door from one corner to the other, the same way you would have drawn a straight line.
I have been wanting sliding barn doors for our office that opens to our family room, but the price of the railing alone has held us back! If you use thinner wood like I did (which allows the doors to be lightweight) adding this piece of wood adds thickness and security for the sliders to hold onto the door. Some people prefer to use a conditioner on their wood prior to staining to ensure the stain takes to the wood evenly.


I’m in the process of building my own barn door and this is the best step by step I’ve seen so far! The only things I did differently was I didn’t pre-drill the screw holes (I used pine and it is soft enough to go through without any problems) and, the best part, I screwed the Z boards from the BACK of the door = no visible screw heads! I may or may not have already known that about these boards, but I’ll make sure to measure the door out before buying the straps then. Your door is great, use wanted to post that I did a barn door on an effenciency apartment about a year ago and I found the hardware at The Home Depot.
But of course spray paint is oil-based and I was using latex paint, so I sanded the door for hours. Also, we don’t find the doors drag because the 90 degree elbows bring the pipe out from the wall, allowing some space between the walls and the doors.
Unfortunately, I don’t have a cost break down, but I can assure you building both the doors & the hardware was fairly inexpensive! As the humidity goes up in the Summer, the wood expands, causing the door to bow and rub the wall.
I meticulously cleaned the door and painted by brush (color matched to the spray paint) the door with two more coats. It will look like you just covered your whole door in red and ruined all the awesome patina..
