We are doing a little upgrading to our bathroom. Our sink is a double sink
but when they built the house they only put a medicine cabinet on one side.
Of course it's the old white plain kind. I bought 2 oak medicine cabinets
and replacing the existing one was easy as the hole was already cut. You
could tell that when they built the house they build a 2x4 frame within the
framing for it to fit into. Now I want to put the other one in the exact
same spot on the opposite wall. I was thinking of cutting the hole in the
exact same spot as the other one but I have no idea what I will find in
terms of framing. If there is framing and it is in the way, it should be no
problem just to cut it out, is that correct? It's not a heavy weight
bearing wall. If I run into no framing at all, I just screw this thing into
drywall so would it be ok to just put a 2x4 frame inside of the hole I cut
along all the edges of the drywall, screwing the 2x4's on with screws and
then the medicine cabinet would hide the screws and I would have a little
wood on the inside to screw into? That's how im seeing this but im a novice
so I will gladly take any advice. Thanks.
