hi :) Can somebody tell me how to insert a niche into a wall (see picture attached)? The problem is that I need a thinner wall part behind the niche to cover it at its back and I do not know how to do it. It is possible to make an opening and insert the niche but it cannot be covered on the other side of the wall - or I do not know how to :) I do not know how to level the walls if I would like to make different thicks in the same field. post-2586-0-85369200-1429155495_thumb.jpg

 

Can you help me? Thank you.  Nelly

Create a doorway.

Size it to the dimensions you require.

If your software title allows you curve the top using the "Arch" tab of the "Door Specification Dialog"

Turn off the "Casing and Sill" of the doorway.

locate the doorway above the floor

Make a small custom "slab" to fill in the back of the doorway

This should work in Home Designer titles that have an "Arch" tab and "Custom Slab" abilities, what do you have?

Thank you David, I made the opening as you told but sorry, I do not know how to make the custom "slab" you mentioned :( Where should I find this "custom slab" ability? The "arch" is o.k.

you may not have slabs in your title , you didn't mention what you have? (add your Title to your forum signature like we do), but all titles have Soffits under Cabinets ,which you can make the same size and material as drywall (or anything else) to fill the back of the niche hole.
