I think we have decide on the Valor radiant fp for our living room. I ill be putting it on the wall the room shares with the garage. I will be bumping it into the room about 11" and have the rear about flush with the garage wall.
Then venting into exsisting unused chimney right next to it.
My ? is this; the paperwork shows the rough opening but it is shown with the fp being flush with the wall. If im bumping it in do I need to now build a wall around the unit 11" deep ?
If so do I need to sheetrock it also or will my mantle cover it when I have it built ?
Or can I just cut the hole in the wall and frame the headre and studs from the garage side and have the fp bump in and then have the carpenter build the mantle or do I need to build a wall so the fp can be fastened to it ?
