Just 2 quick questions, I've to alcoves in bedroom wall roughly 5" deep and want to make the wall flush right across,
No problem with fixing in sides or top/bottom.
Was just wondering should I fix studding straight to wall or build frame first and lift into place??

Also I'm thinking of putting to small niches with a spot light for pictures, just wondering the easiest way to do these?
Build straight to studding?, or plaster board first then cut out what I need and frame?
I know I can buy premade niches but prices are ridiculous

Thanks in advance

You can do the studding either way, if you build it first you'll need to make it smaller than the opening (especially for height) and pack it out when fixing.

For the new niches, I'd do the timberwork first and then p/b it, rather than cutting out p/b and trying to work inside a hole.

One day it will all be firewood.
