« Part 1: Fireplace - Sketchup to reality (almost) Part 2 of Fireplace Construction series no next part

I devoted some more time to the fireplace project. Created the mantle. All pictures so far are unfinished, in fact, everything is just set into position. I am still trying to figure out how to secure this to the wall.

Fireplace Construction

I will likely also continue the wall behind the fireplace to the ceiling and mount the television to the wall. Lately I have been leaning towards a frame and panel type wall instead of painted drywall.

I just looked at the picture in your first part. If your pilaster and mantle are open on the bac, you can mark the layout on your wall, install a clet to the wall and then nail the pilaster and mantle to the cleat. If you need to cover the nails you can install a small molding. I like the idea of a panel above the mantle. Look at one of my last projects and you will find a mantle with a panel above it. We mount a lot of TV”s on this type of panel.
