Just above the fireplace are 20 gauge metal studs with the clearances prescribed by the fireplace manufacturer. Consult your local building codes for any further requirements. The wall above is veneer plaster on the existing backerboard (Blueboard or USG Durock)...consult also with the manufacturer of the plaster for appropriate backboard options for this application. I hope that this helps.

Thanks for your comments!
