barn door on jack and jill bathroom

We are framing our new home, and the plans call for a pocket door in a 2x6 wall joining the guest bath to the guestroom. The bathroom also has a 2nd swing door to the main hallway, to be shared in a "jack and jill" style between our overnight guests and daytime users. Our framers and contractor convinced us to swap out the pocket door (and 2x6 wall) for a barn door and a 2x4 wall, claiming it is less expensive, more stylish, and better resale. I'm struggling with the privacy of a barn door in the setting of the shared bathroom. I see acoustic 'brushes' to attach to the door. Any other advice? We are still in the framing stages, so I suppose the whole wall could be ripped out and a 2x6 wall could be placed instead with the original pocket door idea, but it would be a delay...
