There's a First Time for Everything...Even with Shutters!

Pocket Shutter Door Design and Furnish Project.

Shutter Shack recently had a customer visit our retail outfit requesting an out of the ordinary design for her home  under construction.

Even with having over 40 years of experience performing custom installations, we've never done a job like this- until now!

Here you see the Master Bedroom under construction with no dry wall in place. The Client preferred 3 1/2"  Custom Plantation Shutters  to act as Pocket Doors and slide into her exitsting walls.

After many hours with Designers, Architects, and the on-site Foreman, we were able to come up with a plan to install the tracking prior to closing the walls. Measuring could only be done at certain periods of the project, and we all had to loose a little weight get the doors in the pockets. :)
Well after a few months of planning, ordering, and finishing construction of both the Shutters as well as the room itself we came up with the following results...
The project was quite a challenge, and we did need to close the louvers to stack the panels into the wall. We were quite pleased with the results, as was the customer!

  1. Nice article, you have beautifully described all the window shutter design that can look good. I have one more source related to the same which you might find interesting:
