Subject says it all. I have a fireplace that's exposed from the wall only one brick width, about 4 ft wide, and going from floor to ceiling. I'm thinking to frame, (like not to use 2x4's since that will take up more space, right?) and drywall, (green for potential moisture in the brick) it.
With the future plan of a potential flat tv, (like 45"+), mounted to it so it has to be strong. I have attic access directly above where the brick contacts the ceiling.
How would any of you hide brick but still have wiring behind it?
Best way to run electical and any other potential wires in the future?
