Here is a time lapse video showing the installation of one of our basement pocket doors (it actually took just over one hour, but we sped it up so the video is just over one minute).
Wow that is awesome! I love the video, if i did a time lapse video of any of my projects, there would be huge gaps where i go to Home Depot for something i ran out of.The pocket door looks great, was the track and frame from a kit?
SO cool!!! I love the time lapse video - how did you do that?
Thanks! I found I worked a little faster when the video camera was running, so I might start doing this more often.I actually went to Home Depot right before starting this video, so I was pretty good on supplies. haha ;-)The pocket door track/rollers were from a kit, but I built the frame myself out of plywood (2" thick strips) and 1x4's. There are pre-built pocket door frames for standard sized doors (e.g. 30x80), but that would not work for us because of the ceiling height, so I had to build each frame from scratch. It really was not that hard after looking at how the pre-built frames are built. Plus, we saved a lot of money this way. If we had gone with pre-built frames and new hollow core doors to fit, it would have cost us over $600 for three pocket doors ($100 for each frame, $100ish for each door). By doing it custom and using old wooden doors, this cost us about $115 ($25 for each pocket door kit, $30 for lumber to build frames, $5 for each door). That is a savings of almost $500 ... and old wooden doors are far better than new hollow core doors in my opinion.
I actually just put it in Windows Movie Maker, used the video effect of "speed up, double", and then saved the video file (takes some time for bigger files). I then repeated this multiple times until the video was short enough. This video is 64 times faster than the original.I am sure there is a faster way, but I had other work to do on the computer anyways, so this method worked for me.
Wow, that was amazing! You really are a professional. The pocket door looks great. Do you have a photo of the finished output?
Thanks for posting, this a great instructional video as well for house renovation enthusiasts.
This a nice article guide for home renovators. Very well said and illustrated.
Just finished watching your video, and showed well how to do that renovation.
