I have a finished basement. There is one section that set off from the rest of the basement by a partial wall. This area has two openings ( 62 in wide by 80 inches in height).

I would like to make this area my home office. Given the nature of my work I would like to isolate it from the rest of the basement.

I am thinking of closing the openings with drywall and installing two standard sized doors with locks.

Can anybody think of a better idea?

Thanks

Tom

Are the walls masonry or are they wood frame construction covered in drywall? Either way it shouldn't be much trouble to frame in since the opening is already self supporting. The only problem might be having enough height for a doorway rough opening, about 82" for an 80" door. If the opening is drywalled or framed in wood, you might have enough of a RO after removing drywall or trim.
