Recessed drywall niche above gas fireplace


I am looking for instructions on how to build a recessed drywall niche above a gas fireplace. The niche will be located flush with the top of our mantel and recessing approximately 6 to 8 inches. We would like to build it in a flat arch shape. I know I have seen instructions online before but cannot recall where. Any help from someone in the know would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

What you can do and how you can do it depends on the chimney details.
How is your chimney constructed?

Thread is 3.5 years old and it looks like the OP never provided the necessary input to get feedback.

If you are thinking of something similar? I would start a new thread and fill in the asked for information and provide any other details that would help. Or I guess add them to this one.
