    Hi there,

    I'm building a basic home office / shed.

    I want a nice door ( around 2.8 M wide ) , ideally bi folds or French doors with side panels.

    Conscious that these things will be expensive; but I feel like I'll be paying for things i don't need that ate more designed for a real main building.

    Is there any way of getting basic doors that are eg , single glazing? and basic / no locks ? .
    But look like bi folds? - but are still suitable for outdoors ? I cant afford all the bells and whistles of new ones,
    I've not seen any options like this , apart from internal doors , or doors already attached to a 'cabin' for sale etc ?

    any help apprieciated.

    french doors are probably quite common for sale 2nd hand, maybe get a set of them and then buy new direct glazed sidelights.
