So I have a space determined for a recessed medicine cabinet. when I cut a peep hole in the drywall i determined that the closest stud on the left is 6" from the left edge of the recessed area. and on the right there's only a 1/4 of a stud that goes part way down from the celeing...which would only match about 5 or 6" of where the cabinet would be going...and its about 4.5" from where the edge of the cabinet would be going on the right side anyway.
It was recommended by a friend to just screw 2x4/shims face to face with the studs until it was flush with the opening (after extending the 1/4 stud to make it easier). I was wondering if there is a better option/if this option would be stable/sturdy enough?
