I bought a used three sided fireplace and installed it in our home remodel project. I obtained the documentation for the fireplace via online (google is soooo great). There you will find full information on cleaerances, installation, framing, connection, piping, etc.

It was also helpful when it came time for framing inspection. The inspector did not know off-hand how the three sided fireplace was to be installed so I pulled out the documentation and showed him I framed it in per instructions - inspection done.

1" bigger on width, 3" higher, but check and read the manufacturer's clearances. See if bottom air inlet grate hinges down for a label. Double wall pipe or whatever your County requires for your minimum safety. Possibly a Heatilator?
Be safe, Gary

Be sure you have availability of the correct flue pipes and connections, as they are sometimes no longer available for some fireplaces rendering the fireplace useless. I was going to resell one I pulled out, but it was worth nothing because of this.
