In reply to pocket door by mike medlin on November 9th, 1999 04:23 PM [Go to top of thread] would be more ridgid if you could make the wall equivalent to 2x6 construction. Standard pocket door installation (in my opinion) is flimsy but when done well will suffice. You can use 2x4 lumber sideways on each side of the pocket door frame, allowing for more stability (also using more room though). It would be like building a wall with 2x2's but instead you use 2x4's or 2x6's, etc sideways. It would greatly add to the stability, as tiling over the standard frame could possible create a problem. A double layer of drywall would also make it more rigid. The only problems these solutions present is the need for a custom fit door jamb assembly, which you can make if you know basic woodworking. I'll post more ideas if I come across some...Jeff
