CREATE YOUR OWN FURNITURES

Build a niche in an existing partition wall


The niche is created in an existing drywall partition wall

. We start by tracing the location and cutting the plasterboard with a saw.
Small notches are made at the 4 corners (inside only) so as to be able to position the Kinook blocks which will hold the metal structure.

Position the Kinook blocks and C-studs inside the space in between the two plasterboards.


Build the metal structure, check levels and screw the first panel board on the metallic structure.
