Exterior Barn Doors too!

We manufacture exterior barn doors for barns and out buildings too! While about 90% of our business is manufacturing custom and semi custom sliding barn doors for residential interiors, we do manufacture exterior barn doors as well. The construction of the exterior barn doors is the same as the interior barn doors however; we do a couple of things differently when the barn doors will be outside. First off, we apply a marine grade exterior clear coat sealer over the stained finish. This sealer will protect the finish from the exterior elements and has a "non yellowing", "Ultraviolet" protection additive. Secondly, we install a 2" rubber flap gasket (weather stripping) similar to the one on the bottom of your garage door. This helps to protect the exterior elements from the interior of the barn or out building. The image above is a pair of barn doors we recently built and installed for a North Phoenix customer who built an out building on his property which will be a grand workshop and ATV garage. Please visit our website at or send us an email at:  We welcome the opportunity to discuss your barn door project with you. Our showroom and barn door shop are located in Scottsdale, Arizona in the Scottsdale Air-Park at Hayden Road and Raintree Drive. "We look forward to speaking with you!"

Our Features Become Your Benefits!

Experience The Barn Door Store Difference

At the Barn Door Store, we pride ourselves on handcrafting quality barn doors that are intended to last for years and years. In the above illustration we have spot lighted some of the standard features you can expect when purchasing a sliding barn door from The Barn Door Store. Compare the thickness of our doors at 2 1/4" compared to some of the other barn doors in the industry. Wood is a great insulator and sound deadening material and we feel that should be capitalized on when dividing off a room with a barn door. We also apply the style and rail trim to both sides of the door. So, no matter which side you are look at, front or back, the door will have the same detail and beauty. Notice we apply a beveled edge to each plank which gives the door an added detail and allows each plank to stand alone with its own character. When it comes the the forging of our sliding barn door hardware, only the finest materials are used in our metal shop. Our wheel arms and slide rails are made from solid 1/4" forged steel. We believe "Our Features Become Your Benefits" We are located in Scottsdale, Arizona in the Scottsdale - Airpark. Feel free to visit our Showroom, Barn Door Woodworking Shop and Metal Shop.

Barn Doors with Speakeasy's

We are now offering a "Speakeasy" option with any of our standard and custom style barn doors. The speakeasy originated as a convenient way for farmers to feed their horses by opening a small portion of the barn or stall door and hanging a feed bag under the opening. The concept then evolved to being used on front doors of residential homes as a way of viewing who was at the door without having to actually open the door. We started to offer the speakeasy option after we had a request from a customer to build a pair of 62" wide X 85" tall sliding barn doors with traditional speakeasy's. In addition to our speakeasy option, we have really cool hardware that goes along with the speakeasy concept. In the photos above we have showcased a few. Please contact us with your questions related to our custom made sliding barn doors and barn door hardware. Our manufacturing facility and showroom are located in Scottsdale, Arizona. Send us an email at: or 480-688-3820. We look forward to hearing from you!

The Solution for Tight Situations!

Is the top of your doorway close to the ceiling? Did you think you were not able to install a barn door in that tight space? We have the solution! In the application below we installed a sliding barn door between a master bedroom and bathroom that only had 5" between the top of the doorway and the ceiling. We used a smaller header system and a smaller diameter wheel to accommodate for this challenge. We the installation was complete, we had set the door 1/2" away from the ceiling and left 3/8" from the floor to the bottom of the door. If you have a challenging barn door installation situation, give us a call. Chances are we have a solution so that you can install the barn door of your dreams.

The doors were custom designed to the specifications of their interior designer and finished in a distressed, aged barn red to match their logo. If you are visiting Tucson, Arizona and want the cinema experience of a lifetime complete with leather recliners and your own personal cocktail waitress; visit the Road House Cinema at the northeast corner of Grant and Swan Roads.

Tucson, Arizona Catalina Foothills Barn Doors

3-Rail Planked with Eyebrow Arched Top at Master Bedroom / Bathroom

August 28, 2014 in Beautiful Tucson, Arizona.

We had the pleasure to work with the owners of this wonderful Catalina Foothill Estate in Tucson, Arizona. We designed and manufactured a very large sliding barn door with the same eyebrow arched detail as the pass through arch it hangs in front of. This barn door was to separate the large master bedroom and bathroom (pictured top left). By installing this barn door we instantly gave the room more privacy from the grand master bath and adjacent home gym. Most importantly, the master bedroom feels very cozy and charming when the barn door is closed. Our next challenge was to tie in the master bathroom with a pair of barn doors over the grand entry to the master closet. This custom pair of 48" wide X 7.5' tall Three Rail Planked Barn Doors certainly made a grand statement in the master bathroom.
3-Rail Planked Barn Doors at a Master Closet entry in Tucson, Arizona

We ran the matching barn board header the full length of the bathroom wall to give the home owner to position the doors anywhere on the wall when the doors are in their open position. Many of our customers think of our Barn Doors as "Functional Art" and this will certainly prove to be true in this master bath and the doors can slide to any position along the 172" long rail system mounted on the wall.
