The cost of building your own metal dolly track and doorway dolly system will cost more than just renting for the days needed. This is assuming that you take the time and acquire the materials to do it properly. PVC and some skate wheels won't cost much but your dolly movements will be bumpy and sloppy.

Save yourself a lot of money and labor, just rent.

Here's Ron Dexter's home brew track; http://www.rondexter...dolly_track.htm

If it's just for one film there's a good chance it'll be cheaper renting.
