Vent free rock fireplace

Posted by Lynda on December 18th, 2002 11:39 PM

Can anyone advise me regarding building a vent free granite stone fireplace in my basement?
Questions that arise in my mind are as follows:
- Will the cement floor support the stones? It is about 3 to 4 inches thick.
- Where do I begin?????
_ (The wall is cinderblock) How do I attack the rocks to the cinder block wall without the possiblilty of the rock wall falling?!!!!!!
- Can I build the entire fireplace out of rocks or must I line the fireplace with firebrick?
- Should I build the fireplace to the ceiling
( about 7 1/2 feet tall) or shoud I build it lower?
- What kind of mortar should I use?
------- I can use your advice for my vent free rock fireplace project!
Thank you for your help!
