Closet doors?
I need to put in some doors on a closet in my attic. Problem is the wall ties into the rafters and the tallest rough opening i can get is 63". Is there any door i can buy to put in here? If not is there any one kind of door that is better for this that i can cut down to fit. I spent a couple hours looking at bifolds and other closet doors but most of them are hollow or luvered. I don't really care what kind of door it is as long as i can get it to fit. Thanks for any help on this.

you can get a special order door just about any size and type from local door company or of course the big box stores(home depot, lowes, etc.).

Guess i will have to have a talk with those really helpful people at the HD. Hopefully they aren't crazy expensive cause they are just for an attic room. thanks

What width are you dealing with? Could you use a luan hollow door, they have no details on them so you could cut it down and re install the top support. It would require you to build a jamb for it, but it would work.

like this one:

it would need to be set up as a slider or have an opening side. You could make it into a bifold if you are really crafty.

Just in case anyone else is interested in this information, i just special ordered a bifold door from a box store. Just got a cheap mohagany flush bifold with a finished opening or 62"x48". It was 98 bucks and the normal 80"x48" stock bifold would have been 50 bucks. So double the price but i think it is worth it instead of trying to cut down a door to fit. Thanks for your help on this.
