Thanks! ..now...Moveable Walls?

Thanks greatly to Josh & rbisys, I re-insulated w/ polyu. spray-in foam & added some radiant-barrier. Fantastic difference!! -10 now & it's Warm!!!

Now, time to start on interior work. Want to remove many walls to further airflow from woodstove & light-transmission and solar-gain.

In having such an open floorplan, will need to be able to wall off a guest bedroom occasionally. Has anyone built/used moveable walls of glass or translucent fibreglass?

Please fill me in. My local suppliers know nothing of the glass or fibreglass components, or the hardware!

Thanks alot!!

Can't say that I'm familiar with the fiberglass panels you're talking about. Could maybe use some kind of pocket doors. but no I guess you're not going to have any permanent walls. Maybe look at a decorating place for a screen like what is used in the far east, where space is a premium commodity. Best of luck.

Movable wall

Interesting question.

Reminded me of a freinds house here in Houston that has just what your asking.

The wall between the living room and a bedroom is hinged on one side and will swing up against an outer wall to enlarge the room.

I beleive the wall is a 2x4 construction with drywall or paneling. I am also sure the bottom has some type of wheels to facilitate moving.

I always thought it was a great idea, but the homeowners never used it.
