    So I can install stacked stone ledger panels? It’s going to be used as a gas fireplace only from now on.

    I’m guessing that I can use mortar to level over the brick and use something like Hardy board for over the studs further out? Should I use lath? Or is there a better way?

    I also want to lift up the opening to about 12″ on the bottom and raise the gas tube ‘burner’ to almost that height, too.

    Will adding a couple of rows of any type bricks to the bottom edge be sufficient to adhere the stacked stone panels to down there?

    Thanks for your patience 😉


    Honolulu,, Hi.

    Oh boy that looks to be a mess. I’m sure some one will be able to help you out.. I have never used or seen a fire place in use myself.
