The problem with that is the 2x10 cupping over time, unless I got a very straight one with no heartwood. I'd probably have to back it up with a 2x4 every 2' or so.

I'll use screws and glue for the plywood on the side. That should take care of any sagging. I'll have to devise some way of securing it to the existing wall. Maybe I'll tear off the existing siding there and tie the bump out to the existing studs and plates. If that fails it will be because the wall came down.

Thank you to all who replied. You've saved me from a lot of headaches.

Okay I know this was old thread but I need help......
I have outdoor cooking area I have framed and used 5/8ths permabase into metal studs (they were free so why I used them). I was reading where to add acrylic additive to mortar to cover corners etc....
I bought 2 gallons keralast and 2 bags of Type S mortar.....went to mixing and almost immediately realized something was not quite right. Set up fast.
So I made quick work and toward end guy at building supply said I could add some water if i added little at end.
I didnt add sand (didnt know if I needed to).....temps outside 50 down to 40 up to 60 today.
Go out today and its my question....hammer it off redo? Let dry some more?
Im a DIYr who is not stupid just want overkill to hold veneer manufactured stone eventually...the corner on the 45 to the face of the cooking area was reinforced with metal lathe over the permabase
