How to buildout veneer stone


Hello,
I have a question that I was hoping someone would have some ideas on.
I'm installing veneer stone on a block wall and I need it to stick out from the wall approx. 3" to be even with the framed wall on either side.
The stone is only about 1" - 1 1/2" thick, so I need to put something on the wall behind the stone to build it out, but it needs to be fireproof.
Any ideas?
Thanks!

I'd guess metal framing with cement backer board would work. A pro will likely advise.

What I ended up using was solid concrete block/slabs that were approx 8x16x2 and basically built up a wall against the block wall (foundation) and then attached the stone to the new wall. It worked out perfect! The block/slabs comes in different sizes and can be purchased at your local brick yard.

Did you lay them flat horizontal or vertical? That's what I was thinking of doing, but I'm not sure if that much weight would be an issue for me. Thanks!

How did you attach the solid concrete wall to the block wall?

Plain old patio blocks work well, and can be "buttered" to adhere to the existing wall, just like the thin stone. You can also add some Tapcons through the face once they dry as well.
