Installing the Framework

Fix horizontal furring strips around the perimeter of the area to be paneled. They should be at the top and bottom of the area to be paneled, and also at equidistant intervals between these extremes, ideally 16 inches (400 mm) apart, taking care not to pierce wires or pipes, and making sure to fasten to studs.
