Paneling fireplace.

Posted by Joey on March 11th, 2003 10:03 AM

I am planning on closing up and paneling the brick fireplace in our house to match the existing paneling. It is about 7' wide and 20' tall. I have torn off the hearth and taken off the mantel. It protrudes only 2" from the wall. I do plan on capping off the stack and am not sure what to do about the opening. Also, what would be the best method of attaching the paneling. I was thinking of 2" firring strips on 12/16" centers attached with const. adhesive and concrete screws into the mortar joints. Am I looking at this right, or is there a better way? Thank you...Joey Robinson
