Faux stone veneer
I'd like to remove a wall of faux stone veneer surrounding the fireplace in my living room. The fireplace is masonry construct, flush with the inside wall. I expect to find stud wall and expanded metal left and right of the fireplace and chimney but I'm don' know what to expect between the chimney and the stone. The house went up 40 plus years ago for a "Show of homes" during which short cuts may have been taken.
