We decided to build a custom barn door with the ground floor wood that we salvaged. I scored the industrial rails system from the Canadian Rubber Co. building (now Cite 2000) here in Montreal. Actually the building is across the street. Cedric showed up with his grinder, and an hour later it was disassembled. Next step was sanding the steel, then painting it, and cutting the rail to size.

Due to the heavy weight of the rail system, Sylvain had to reopen the bathroom wall to make sure the original hardware hit the studs! Following the advice of an architect friend of ours, we put wheels under the door. Glides easy, and it transfers the weight of the door - from rail to wheels.

We love it!
