Re: Recessed Medicine Cabinet
Thing is, with a header, you have to have full support all the way to the floor under the header, you don't just toe-nail it into a little hole in the wall. Not saying that a header isn't the way to go or wouldn't be possible, just that it's going to take a lot bigger hole in the wall to install it.
