Steel fireplace facade for metal newbie


I have a fireplace that I hired a friend to cover with thin gauge raw steel. He has left the planet and is no longer contactable. Iím sure heís just overwhelmed with other work.

Looks like Iíll have to do this job myself. Our plan was to make it look like the picture below, but steel going all the way up.

What are some industrial looking options to cover up the fireplace? Iíd prefer to put some type of thin gauge steel up there.

Its 10í tall and 47Ē wide. The column on the right of the fireplace are for a vent. Iíd like to continue the same look on the vent.

Thanks

Not sure of your wall covering, but the fireplace, on the left side will need a metal stud and cbu in that 2" space, since sheetrock and wood studs are combustible products

Thinking thin gauge raw steel plates. If I can get some large sheets, I can template the fireplace, scribe and cut with an angle grinder.

How do I deal with the sharp edges?
