Rough In Opening for a Bypass Door
We're installing two 32" doors into a rough in 64" opening. This will allow for a 1" overlap. Easy.
We're getting conflicting information though regarding the height. When we demo'd the existing closet, we measured a 83" opening and the doors were/are 80" giving a 3" opening for drywall, flooring, sliding etc. Almost everything we read it says leave 82".
The hardware we are using didn't designate anything. We're nervous about decreasing it down to 82" since it wasn't that way before, and it would be easy to shorten the distance but HELL to increase it. That said, 82" does sound better since we had a bit of a gap before on the bottom (but stayed within the guide).
Framers what do you do and why?
