Re: Onward Bifold doors

Thanks guys , great information. Shannon basicly for my doors I cut them the same length and width as the other room as the finished opening was the same and even got the same doors but hardware changed. I'm thinking with this style of hardware maybe the doors need to be a bit slimmer to allow for t...

Thanks Shannon that worked, still got some adjusting to do and may have to put the metal door locks in behind to keep them straight.

Re: Onward Bifold doors

The sliding guides are probably supposed to touch and press against each other, this back pressure is what keeps the doors closed. I would start by setting the door pin so that the track guide is slightly forward of the edge of both doors, and slowly work the pin location until you get the spring t...

Re: Onward Bifold doors

Thanks Shannon so only one sliding spring thingy is needed? Does the door on the right pin slide right in next to where the left door is in between the two springs now? I don't think I'm understanding. If two sliding spring things are needed they butt up too close and doors won't close.

Re: Garage extension

Thanks for the reply Shannon, no I don't have a picture the interior is all closed in with plywood. The trusses were homemade and do span the wall. I'm thinking it is fine because its just a continuation of the front half of the garage but with a divider wall with a door cut into it.

Ok Shannon apparently this is a drop in type tub that basicly drops into a square framing and is supported by the floor mostly and also the perimeter framing. It is meant for the lift around the tub to sit on the knee wall.

Hi Shannon There's a new jucuzzi bathtub going in. I was looking to make the cribbing for it so the tub sits on the top of the cribbing. For the top horizontal piece of 2x4 it will only fit under the lip of the tub with the 2x4 on edge. Should I maybe be using a 2x2 for top horizontal? Also the rear...

Shannon I've been told for in a washroom on an outside wall when using pink insulation between the studs and cement board , this is around the shower/tub that a vapor barrier is not used. What is the proper way for this?
