    Default Create a Stone Veneer Rock Wall

    First post. My project, create a stone wall over my fireplace (wood) mantle using El Dorado Stone, River Rock veneers. I have a two store family room and the wall is 88 square feet with no corners. The wall is painted sheet rock. I'm getting mixed advise. Will the felt and metal lath support the weight of the rocks and keep out moisture, or do I need to reinforce the wall? If so with what? Helpless homeowner, thanks Edie

    Do you live in an earthquake zone? if you do, this type of construction is a bad idea.
