Tiling fireplace

Would it be ok to use 1/4 " hardibacker for dry stacked stone tile or better to go with 1/2" ? Total height is 15 '.

Thanks, Paul

Is a for strength? Wouldn't the load be directed to the floor?

Its about flex between stud bays. You're free to do as you please obviously. When in doubt call the manufacturer.
