I am installing 2 24" bifold doors side by side. Can anyone tell me the rough opening that I should build. Thanks a bunch for your help

Depends if your going to wrap in wood or drywall. A wood wrap is going to require a 50" x 82" rough opening. 1/2" drywall will require 49 1/4" x 81 1/2" rough opening if your using drywall bead prior to fininsh. However, not all bifolds are built the same, most bifolds are 79" in length, some are 80". You will need to an inch to the above if your bifolds are 80".
Most have rough opening size on the package. Go to the store and check....
Don't forget the finished floor thickness....... Be safe, G
