bedroom and boys' bedroom that makes
our bathroom/shower set-up work.
Sort of like the entrance to "Control" at
the beginning of Get Smart!
I found that in drawing our floor plan, door swings could require a lot of room without gain in room function... So we have 9 pocket doors in our house. I was hesitant at first, remembering cheap, hollow pocket doors and weak hardware from pocket doors I'd used years back. But Hubby assured me he could get sturdy hardware and we could use solid core or even French-style glass paned doors in the pockets. I love them. They do the jobs quite well, are not hard to use, and the doors are never in the way.
Adding a family room would be more complex, since it would become part of the house, and need electricity and heat, joining in the existing systems. In preparation for that dream, we placed a larger-than-necessary header over the window in the center of our south wall, so that it could become a wider doorway to the new room.

Doorway is where current window is.
One more post to go on this subject, so please 'stay tuned'....
