Stone Fireplaces Before & After

This fireplace is an improvement to the standard builder special where the homeowner gets only drywall. The question is why was the fireplace so narrow and why did the brick go up only about 2/3 of the way?

We built a frame above the brick and also widened the fireplace by 6" on each side of the fireplace. The customer selected our ledge stone in a style called dry stack and the stone was installed without a mortar joint. North Star Stone, Libertyville, IL
