    I believe with some pipe you are supposed to frame it in. I used excel pipe though and it didnt say frame it in.Not sure with what pipe you have though

    Mine is not framed in there really was no need to frame it in and there was nothing internal on the thimble to frame it to, the outside section attched to the siding and the inside is attached to the drywall with wall anchors, The inside does not support the pipe at all so no need to frame it for support.
