The decision to add built-ins to the study and narrow the case opening went hand in hand. I had to narrow it all down to make room for the shelves on either side of the opening. And of course this is a space where Chris and I work a lot so I wanted to add a door why pocket doors there are many reasons to add a pocket his door and here are a few I’d like to introduce_______

- Pocket doors maximize spaceSmall rooms and narrow hallways, especially with multiple doors, can be a nightmare for swing doors. It doesn’t make sense for the door to swing into the den with the built-ins right there. Also, I really didn’t want them to swing out to the entry as it could interfere with the beautiful grand staircase and front door.Pocket doors seem to have solved the problem!
