STEP 1: Measure and create extra framing to support the EasyNiche
in the desired position. Ensure that screw holes line up with
supporting nogs/ studs. (see Fig 1). Before screwing into wall
position, ensure that wallboard will finish flush with outside edge of
EasyNiche flange. Pack out EasyNiche if necessary.
