how does a double door work / make a double door?
I am trying to best determine the types of doors for a new closet area in the basement. There is a 6' section, a small partition and a 2' section. I like the idea of sliders but could not come up with a decent looking way to may the 2' door slide 'thru' the partition to the other side. Bifolds will work but the kids are kind of rough on them. It was suggested I put a 24" framed interior door in the 2' section and a double 36" door in the other section.
I looked and double doors are way out of my budget. The neighbor says to buy to 36" framed hollow core doors (in my budget), remove the jams on one side, but them together and hang to make my own double door. Sound simple enough but personally, I have never seen a double door and do not even know how they work...ie what keeps them closed since there is nothing between them for the door knobs to latch into.
How do double doors work and what would be involved in trying to convert two singles to a double...?
