culture stone fireplace

Hi Guys (and gals)
Im redoing the stone on the fireplace and had a few questions

I have old rock on it right now and want to remove it and add culture stone up 15 feet to the ceiling.

basically my plan is to remove the stone which looks like old thick rock up to the cinder blocks (about 8 inches) then frame up to the ceiling with 5/8 plywood flush with the remaining cinder blocks. Cover it all with mesh, mud it, and add the culture stone...

Now, what am I missing? because Ive never dont this before and havent worked with cement much...

before - after
