We are remodeling our brick fireplace using a combination of stone and building a mantel out of an old log cabin beam. We are unsure if we should put stone on first or the mantel and take the stone up to the mantel. I have attached a picture of mantel we like (we are using a much smaller stone and dry stacking it). Any advice would be appreciated, we are new DIYers. Thanks

Apply the stone first and then set the mantle on top of stone

What about the "legs" that support the mantel, rock on wall first or bring rock up to them? We already have the hearth stone set. Thanks so much for your advice
