How can I build a medicine cabinet between studs & flush w/ the door?
We’re downsizing and new house has NO linen closets or pantry just a closet in short hallway. Also, husband and I being seniors need medicine cabinet. I’m thinking about building a cabinet between studs in one bathroom there’s a short blank space behind door. It would be perfect if we can use a type of hinge that doesn’t show and recess door so it will be flush with wall , pretty much so I hope. I know in my head what I need for it to be like but hubs tells me I’m a carpenters nightmare, guess I inherited that from my late father he always worked things out in his head first. Has anyone built a storage space between studs and built so door will be flush with wall. I have a very large photo that I had blown up and put in poster frame, it will cover door. I have it in bathroom now.

I built the storage space between studs but left it open. What about something similar to barn door that will slide?
A door flush with the wall would give you very little shelf space in the wall. Wall thickness is 3 1/2". With a door taking part of the space you would be left with about 3" or less shelf space depending on the thickness of the door. Most in wall stud cabinets take the whole space of the cavity with a surface door.
Maybe this will help you Martha!
