    We build the box out of 2x4s and wrap it with 1/2" plywood or osb and leave the area just above the unit for concrete board, some builders just use drywall to wrap the box. When the unit is new it comes with little tryangles of tin placed on top, anything above that is ok to use wood. No need to fill corners or joints.
