neb:33coupe:Do read up on the pros and cons of cavity sliders before you settle for them. The two big ones are that you can't put them in a load-bearing wall, and that they're a maintenance nightmare, if you get stuff trapped in the cavity (which sliders tend to do) or there's a failure of some part then there's no easy way to get at it to fix it. So sliders are best for locations where they're semi-permanently open or closed, not where they'll get a lot of use.
Family room - I was thinking about cavity slider, think he quoted $1500 though, so a bit put off. I havent thought of tv / speakers positioning yet unfortunately. Will check the windows though as could save some cost there.
Some really good responses here already @33Coupe. Having been through this process just over 2 years ago for a high-end bespoke build, I'm very happy to help, so feel free to DM me with specific questions.
@neb - that's not entirely correct; you can double-frame the wall, which gives you all the benefits/no drawbacks (other than the cost of a little extra framing. We did this because our lounge cavity slider is also the same wall our TV is mounted on, and I wanted cabling hidden in the framing. And technically, very few (if any) internal walls in a modern truss roof design are actually load bearing.
And in terms of maintenance, all the hardware is on the door, which can be removed, so barring a botched install, you'd never need to get into the cavity. Biggest issue with large wooden cavity sliders is that they can warp (yes, even metal-re-enforced ones).
