The 79 high is 1" lower than a standard door, but might work. The 8 foot wide might or might not be a problem.
You don't have a lot of choices on doors, which might be good in this case.
Bi-fold or bypass like a closet or patio slider, or maybe 3 each (hinged doors) if you have room for the swings.

Once a picture is up, you will get some better ideas.

Beter not to upload pictures. Instead just insert them. http://www.doityourself.com/forum/li...rt-images.html Just remember to adjust the width to 600px or less. The height can be 1000px or more.

Covering this opening with doors should be fairly easy. It depends on the privacy you want.
The 79" high is only one inch shorter than a standard door height, so the doors would need cut down.
The cheapest and easiest would be to install bypass closet doors, but offer the least privacy.
You're not being very specific to what you want. You could cover this opening for $200, or $10,000.

This is just a quick search to a company that provides sliding door hardware, the same hardware might be available to you locally off the shelf.
Johnson HardwareŽ 2204F SLIDING BYPASS DOOR HARDWARE

The most important thing about saving money is not the hardware. Spend money on the hardware and make the doors simple 3/4" slabs of MDF or whatever.

I was also thinking about a triple track Johnson hardware sliding door. Three 36" doors might work if you dont mind some overlap.


Johnson hardware is worth every penny. Hang some cheap hollow doors on it. Track will cost more than the doors probably.
