Temporary Wall

I am having a relative stay at my place in the 14x13 family room. I wanted to know if there was a way to put up a temporary type wall to block that room off like its a normal bedroom? I'd really like to avoid building a framed wall and was wondering if there was some way to use like a ceiling track system and put up some divider wall that can be drawn to close and retracted to open. I'd rather not use curtains and would rather have a "barn door" type thing across the opening.

Is there anything like this available that is lightweight and sturdy?

You have too many criteria involved. "temporary" "lightweight" "sturdy" "barn door" "ceiling track". The only thing you didn't mention was "cheap".

Most anything you put up with a track will become permanent. Anything lightweight won't be sturdy. A barn door design will require very heavy track systems.

Can you post a picture of what you have? That space is really not much bigger than a bedroom to begin with, so we need to see what you see. http://www.doityourself.com/forum/el...your-post.html
