Corners on a stone veneer fireplace
Hello all, I'm in the process of setting up to do a fireplace surround for a gas insert(conversion from wood). I'm trying to figure out the best way to handle the corners of the stone veneer. I plan on building my wall out the four inches or so (with metal studs) to allow for the corner pieces natural depth, but then that would mean that all of the corner pieces would be at the same length on the front of the fireplace. (material is eldorado stacked stone)
My assumption that I would like to check with people more knowledgeable is do people cut the corner pieces at the four inch mark and then put the cut corner against the drywall? Or is there a better way to handle how the corner pieces are stacked? (We are going for the drystack look)
And as a double check, cement board with modified polymer thinset should be all I need to put this up right?
