I am installing a pocket door in my unfinished split level basement. The concept seemed simple at first but when I realized that I have to frame "floating partition walls" in my basement, due to the lovely clay conditioned soils in Colorado, the pocket door installation seemed more complicated. I am not sure how to frame in a pocket door in a floating partition wall.
As far as I can tell the door will be raised above the floor a good 3 inches!! That can't be right!
