First I pulled the paneling off the wall then I built a 2x6 frame. As you can see there is a plug in the middle of the wall so I had to move it. I wrapped it with cement board. As you can see I moved the plug to the side and ran a new plug for the stove in the floor. I then applied the tiles my wife picked out. I then applied cultured stone up the wall. My father came over and assisted me with moving the stove That's my little Englander 25 PDVC pellet stove All I have left to do is finish pulling the paneling off and paint the walls.
