Hi, we are going to run stone to the ceiling which is 8ft high. I read the min clearance for the mantel needs to be 12 inches from the firebox. I'm a little confused if I am required to go beyond the 12 inches since my wood mantel will be 7 inches deep. The taped mantel is 13 inches above firebox in my picture.Any help is greatly appreciated! Also, a TV will not be going above the fireplace. Our tv is on a different wall.
