DIY recessed cubby holes


Anybody have a link or info on DIY recessed cubby holes (in drywall)? Want to put some in the wall near the door to my house wondering if anyone has done this. Thanks

Do a Google search for shower niche or drywall niche.

Since it's near the outside door that would mean it's an outside wall. How do you plan on still being able to insulate the wall with a nitch there?

There is also a strong possibility of electric in that area.

Drywall niche, that's it. It's actually an interior wall. Thanks!

cubby hole is a shelf in the wall like a milk chute. no door, just open to the inside.

I used 1x4 pine to build this cubby in my bathroom. I don't see any reason why you couldn't do something similar. It all depends what you want the end result to be like.
