A Classic Sliding DIY Barn Door Kit for Rustic Spaces


The Rancher Double Z Sliding DIY Barn Door Kit is a rustic classic, inspired by actual barn doors and equestrian stalls. Originally Z-braces on these doors were intended for structural stability, but now we use them to make a design statement. This door is a double-down version of our Rancher Z Brace door, with two Z braces and a mid-bar between them, plus vertical planks as a foundation.


What makes our plank barn doors different from the rest? We make ours with solid wood for optimal longevity. Solid wood also just looks and feels better, since it's true to the spirit of original barn doors. We offer twenty different wood species, so that you have plenty of options to make this sliding barn door coordinate with your unique style. Here are some customer favorites for this door: 

  • Knotty Alder
  • Quarter Sawn White Oak
  • Hickory
  • Sapele Mahogany


This barn door kit is available pre-assembled or in a DIY option. If you choose the DIY option, we'll send you the pre-slotted planks for a fun weekend project. It is compatible with single, bi-parting, or bypassing configurations. Complete the look with a rustic sliding barn door hardware kit, like our Big Wheel kit or Horseshoe kit. Or if you're after a more minimalist vibe, our Classic Flat Track offers a sleek silhouette that will allow the door design to take center stage.


Skilled artisans make all our doors by hand onsite in Gig Harbor, a small seaport town on the Puget Sound in Washington State.

 Please note that doors will ship separately from sliding hardware when purchased together. Doors are pictured with hardware for context. Sliding hardware is sold separately, and not included with the purchase of a door. Doors are not pre-drilled for hardware. If you order a door and a hardware kit, we are unable to ship hardware installed on doors due to the risk of damage in transit. 


We designed these doors with interior applications in mind. We don't recommend exterior use, and can't guarantee against warping or damageif you install your door outside. To have this door specially crafted for exterior use, call us at 1-253-853-3815 and we’ll be happy to help! 


If you wish to customize the door even further, we can make your dream door a reality! Please understand that customization will add to the lead time. If you need more than 10 doors, or if your project requires special consideration, please call 1-253-853-3815.

When determining the size of your barn door, we recommend that the door overlaps the doorway to minimize gaps and provide some sound-muffling for privacy. An inch of overlap on each side is a good rule of thumb for barn doors. For example, a 36” x 80” doorway would need a 38” x 81” sliding barn door. If you would like more sound sealing, then a 2-inch overlap on either side is best. To make sure it looks as intentional as possible, your barn door should also completely cover any molding on the door opening when closed. So if you have molding, you’ll need to factor that into your measurements as well.

RealCraft offers twenty different wood species from budget-friendly to exotic and rare. One of the reasons we love real wood so much is that it carries the character of its natural habitat and is a living material. Wood species respond differently to humidity and temperature conditions. If you aren't sure which wood species to pick, call us at 1-253-853-3815.  


We recommend adding a clear finish to your door to protect it and ensure that it iseligible for coverage under our warranty.A clear finish not only protects your door, it also enhances the door’s beauty while preserving its natural, unique texture. Clear finish brings out the color and detail of the wood grain.   


We offer the following finish options:  

White Primer: Added to Paint Grade Hardwood. For this option, we use only high-quality hardwoods like European Beech or Red Grandis. These species provide a smooth surface for paint.  

Clear Satin EuroFinish by Osmo: A premium hand-rubbed hardwax oil that conditions, seals, and finishes the wood.  

Oil Stain EuroFinish by Osmo: A premium hand-rubbed hardwax oil that stains, seals, and finishes the wood.
