When designing a fireplace such as this, how do you determine the best dimensions for your stone and wood surround? I have a 36 inch wide by 28 inch high opening with a standard 8 foot ceiling. The code states I must have a minimum of 8 inches to the sides and 12 inches above of non-flammible surface (stone, brick, etc...) Do you have any advice as to what would look best in this scenario? I want something that looks close to this picture. I am curious, though, how much area I should have of stone to the sides and top as well as how wide and tall the mantle and surround should be. Any help is much appreciated! Thank you!!!

How do you attach the wood surround to the stacked stone?, I mean , do you set the mantel inside the masonary on flush up against it? I am wondering about the neatness.

The wood mantel really needs to be installed first, and then run the stone to it.

Trying to add a mantel after the fact is possible, but nightmarish.
