Fireplace Framing

I am planning to install a Novus ND4842 gas fireplace in my bedroom. When framing for the fireplace, how do I attach the frame to the existing structure?

It depends on the mantle. When my gas fireplace was installed it used a custom built mantle. It was attached directly to the wall studs.

Is the fireplace going into a corner or a flat wall? Is it vented or ventfree?

Thank you for your reply.

The fireplace is going in a corner. It will have a 12" raised hearth. It's a direct vent fireplace and will be vertically vented through the attic and roof.

Mine was a ventfree. The base portion was a simple triangle built with 2x6's. This brought the "step" up off the floor about 5 1/2". The mantle frame was a triangle built from 2x4's and screwed into the base and wall studs.

The fireplace was rated for in-wall installation so no open clearance was required.
