  1. Building & Construction
    Hi there - I'm new to the site - I've been doing some renovation bits and pieces around the house and the one I'm doing at the moment is attempting to add a smallish walk in robe as we need more clothes storage! We have a largish bedroom (~6.1 x 3.8m) - much of which was wasted space, so...

    The closet door in my room is currently indented 17 inches from the rest of the wall. Presumably, the builder did this in order to accommodate a standard 50 in wide x 81 in tall sliding doors, which are currently installed, as seen in this album. I would like to install a set of bifold doors at...
