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!!!

I was going by the measurement at the edge of each door. It is an opel 2 by rsf. Some items i look at say 37" in the book and others say 25". I'm not sure which to go by now.

Here is a front on photo of the actual fireplace. Not very pretty! I am going to paint the doors black with high heat paint at another time. Gold is just so unsightly.
