Any ideas on how to use pocket or sliding doors to open up a room when you have very little wall on the sides

Define very little, are we talking total amount of wall or walls with other issues?
The amount of panels can be increased and in some cases split both ways cutting the depth one way and adding to the thickness of the wall.
Because of issues inside the walls I installed the door on a track on the outside of the wall on the last home I built. It was simplified being a inside door.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Get Ready...It's Patio Time!
Here is a wonderful example of how to open up a home to an outdoor patio - it is such a wonderful extension of the home. Even when the glass doors are shut, it is visually connected.
Scheer & Co. added this to Deep Pockets: Doors with Panache
Being able to fully open a wall to the outside is a personal dream of mine (along with outdoor showers). These pocket doors create a seamless transition from inside to outside, extending the house visually into the well-appointed garden. Next: Browse more photos of pocket doors
Natalie Myers added this to Discover the Ins and Outs of Pocket Doors
Pocket doors can help to regulate access to the outdoors in a breathtaking manner. But having an intricate system of multiple sliding pocket doors means that the structural integrity of the wall can be reduced, because the door cavity sits where wall studs would be located. Be sure to discuss your vision with an architect or engineer.
