I want to install (2) 24" bifold doors side by side. What is the size of the rough opening? I will be finishing with halh inch sheetrock. Also is there anything between the doors? I guess its called a mullian. Thanks for your help

Buy the doors first, then build the rough opening for the set. On the packaging it will state the finished opening needed for the doors sizes you want.
There is no mullion. If the space near the jambs are more then you like, you can install a narrow stop molding to close the space.

I just installed a set on Saturday (along with 12 slab panels, a pocket door and 1 prehung!) and the finished size for the set of doors I had required 47 1/2". 48" would works as well, you'll just have a slightly larger gap clearance on the outside edges.
