I just bought a wall oven that was dicontinued and put on clearance in a large DIY. It did not come with any type of sleeve to slide it into after the wall was built. I am going from a standard oven to a wall oven so will be building a *box* to put it in.

Are there any concerns with materials and the like needed to build the enclosure with?

Thanks in advance

** It did not come with any type of sleeve to slide it into after the wall was built. **

I've never seen such a thing. Wall ovens usually mount directly into a cabinet or wall, nothing in between. Check its installation instructions.

** I am going from a standard oven to a wall oven so will be building a *box* to put it in... Are there any concerns **

Make sure the "box" is stable enough to not flip over when the oven door is opened or even in the unusual case of someone using the door as a step. Most freestanding cooking appliances need to have anti-tip safeties installed to meet current building codes.

** any concerns with materials **

Check the installation instructions. I would think any material safe for use in cupboards holding a typically mounted wall oven would be adequate?
