    Planning to build stud wall in bathroom, against the masonry wall, as wife wants recessed niches along the bath and to hide services.

    I was going to use 3m length of 4x2 (the ceiling is 2.8m)

    The lockdown starting next week means I cannot collect (friend with van is unavailable) and I cannot fit it in my car.

    Only option for 3m lengths and delivery is 3x2.

    Can anyone see any problems (other than the faff) in using 3x2 for the studwork and packing it out from the wall using batons, to give me the depth a 4x2 would?

    This will be covered in tile backer board and tiled.

    I dont see any problem with this although appreciate anyones thoughts or pointing out pitfalls I may not see?

    I reckon this lockdown will be longer than 4 weeks and dont want to have the time but none of the materials to get cracking.

    Cheers

    Why pack it out? Just build the frame.
