Going back to the options for the door. It seems to me that a stable door would be ideal. You can get some very nice internal ones now and no you don't need a horse!

It would mean that if the baseboard was below the level of the top section it could be opened whilst the bottom section stayed closed.

If the worst happened and someone was stuck in the room anyone could lean over the bottom section, raise the baseboard, throw the bolt and enter.

If you really did want privacy the top and bottom section can be bolted together. Seems easier than a sliding door. That's my ten pennies worth....

First thing I did when he sent it.
Sadly, my dreams of moving to warmer climes (current French temps excluded) just took a knock - first grandchild born yesterday morning. There's no way SWMBO will go more than five bloody miles now.
And I'm fitting an extra bolt on the inside of the shed door.

Never thought about a stable door. I thought you only got them as house doors in America. Glad I don't have to get a horse. it would want to sleep at the bottom of my bed and I'd have flat crushed legs in the morning
I was looking at a you tube video of a small layout called Brockwell Lane and I thought if he could have such a small layout and make it work I can have something great with my space. he also has updates where he put up a great backdrop which changed the layout quite considerably.

Finally got round to downloading Scarm and I'm going to watch some tutorial videos on you tube.
