We have an approximately 6x8" hole in the drywall that serves as a
crude access hole to the shower behind it. The previous owners had
just hung a large louvered vent (much bigger than the hole) to cover
it. The hole itself is framed internally on 1 side by a stud and the
other sides just have open plaster or plaster/lathe.
What is the best way to cover the hole while still preserving access
to the plumbing?
1. Building a wooden frame around it and cutting a plywood door which
is then painted. However, this takes a fair bit of work...
2. Buying a prefab panel? However, my local home stores only had one
version which was for a much larger size. Also, would I still need
to build a frame around it?
