Very thorough guidelines for creating a wall to wall closet. A great product to install for wall to wall closets is: http://www.closetwalls.com - they provide wall mounting closets that can be made at any custom size.

This is exactly what I am doing with my foyer closet but I don't know what type of hardware to use. I don't need a lock. I don't have an astragal. I do want handles on both sides of both doors. How do I keep the doors closed and from swinging open?

If you're really tight on space to open the doors, 2 panel or mirrored bypass doors should work. That's what we have in our home and they're not that difficult to install.

If you can't find the double doors they suggest. You could build your own ( http://www.bt3central.com/archive/index.php?t-31178.html ).You can definitely buy two door slabs and cut to fit.

I am creating closets and the Raw space is 50" x 82" so I should be able to fit a double hun door set of 24" each door correct?

Where do I get the closet doors? Are they 2 seperate prehunt doors or are they sold as a set? I went to HomeDepot and she looked at me like I had a horn on my head.

Wouldn't wood screws be a better choice than brittle drywall screws?
