    Barn door anyone?

    I want to add a flat track rolling door, i.e., a barn door, to my plan. Any ideas on how to do this?

    Using interiors, your only choice is a standard sliding door, re-sized/edited to emulate a barn door. That is what I have done and it worked to my satisfaction but you will have to make up your own mind about the matter.

    This calls for ... hum a few bars and I'll fake it ... Does Interiors have soffits? If so ...

    1. Doorway sized for the opening.
    2. Soffit sized and shaped to be a sliding door.
    3. Another soffit, much smaller, sized to be the sliding rail.
    4. More soffits to make the cross-bucks and frame on the door. (optional)
    5. Apply appropriate textures.

    Thanks for the idea

    I already used a soffit for the top rail, but never thought about it for the door. I used a fix-pane window, eliminated the sill, reduced the casing, and applied wood to the glass, but it doesn't look that good. I'll give this a shot (I don't really need the diagonal trim on the door, just really wanted to show it fastening on the top).
