Interior Sliding Doors
We’ve been working on building our interior doors lately. We had two big goals we wanted to achieve with them: sound isolation and light transmission.
We’ve tried to accomplish the former by wrapping the edges of the door with a little rubber gasket that should seal around all edges when the door is closed. We’ve also attached the sliding door’s track to the wall at a slight angle, creating a slight inclination to slide shut against its seals. To achieve light transmission, the bulk of the door will be a frosted glass panel.
The doors are far from complete, but they’re coming together. Next steps including making the sliding mechanism more fluid, adding a ‘stop’ to keep the door open, sheeting the door with paneling made from the old house and adding a simple locking mechanism. Whew! Once we get one done however, the rest should be a snap.
