I love your floors do you have a video on them?

Jennifer Hydrick says:

omg this is extremely cool, I been looking for barn doors and there so expensive, but this here is boom. thanks i so appreciate you sharing this.

Lin Iad says:

While I appreciate the instruction, I DO NOT appreciate being deceived the title of $40.00 door when clearly, the supplies just to build the door, NOT including hardware, are well in excess of $40.00. Please don't get people to view your video based on very unrealistic costs..

Andy Chu says:

Nice work your videos makes this easier for first time DIY’ers.
Question, can this door be hung with hinges and fitted with a knob like a traditional door? I’m thinking the side pieces just need to be thicker to house the knob assembly?

Alison Koizumi says:

I bought exactly what was on the list and had the wood cut and the 3 short boards that fit horizontally are too long. now wtf do i do

Tyler Sparks says:

Since there was no attempt to clamp the boards together and glue and or joint them together somehow (Biscut, Tongue and Groove, mortise and tenon then and or close the gaps between filler boards this barn door after a few months in the house will show so much sunlight. $40 you get what you spend.

Larry Good says:

Where are you getting the lumber for under $40.00????

Joseph Kampsnider says:

Really a great tutorial , buying a house and it will have a barn door now!

shawn knowles says:

Going to use this video in building my door. Great job!

CriticalElixir says:

now u can insulate it and cover with ply

fidel fernandez says:

Can you do this to make garage doors?

T B says:

Why'd you cover up the beautiful blue of the wood on the edge. Nice door.

David Eades says:

I really appreciate this video so much! I’m halfway to finishing my barn door, but the “under $40” is a little misleading, because I spent $98 just on lumber at a local lumber yard. It is still cheaper than buying one pre-made though.

Nice one mate greetings from the UK

TexasMagnoliaHome says:

Great tutorial!! 😍 I love how the door came out! ❤️

Chris L. says:

Tayou Zulme says:

I love you guys💕💕💕💕💕

Angel Nieves says:

Buen trabajo 👍👍👍Saludos desde Puerto Rico 🇵🇷

Tom Wipperfurth says:

What about expansion

john vonburg says:

Lots Videos to Build Doors. But the HARDWARE very expensive. I would like someone to put a rolling kit together from scratch. to truly save a dollar. Hardware cost more than the doors.

Brian McDowell says:

How much was your hardware?

Hazel Yoshida says:

Thanks for the easy to understand tutorial. Great job! Whether it actually costs $40 or $140 in materials, it will still be a lot less expensive than buying barn doors.

Magnifique Mee says:

Wonderful. I am now on a roll to up-do my home

Scott Weber says:

Looking at the hardware kits, most say door depth should not exceed 1 3/4". using 1×8's and 1×4's make this a 2" thick door. Does this present a problem when hanging the door?

mike rose says:

I build my doors out of skid wood, i do joint edges and glue them. Yes they do move and seperate somewhat. But Just adds to the old wood look. Plus other then labor wood is fre and has nice patina !

mike rose says:

Nice job. I'm old school wood worker, should spread glue all over boards. use finger or brush. also predrill holes. go to harbor freight and buy cheap drill.to drill holes. then use other one to drive screws. or just do it the way your doing it. HAHA!

Lisa G says:
