Question DetailsAsked on 7/14/2015

need to have an electric fireplace recessed into an accent wall and install a tv above it.

I am looking at having a surround built for a 74" Caesar electric fireplace to place the surround against the existing accent wall. Or build out the existing accent wall from the floor up at least 4 feet 1\2 feet at 5-6" inches in thickness to accommodate the recessed fireplace. then tile the accent wall and hang a 60" inch flat screen TV above it.

If looking at wall buildout (almost certainly the more expensive option) then you probably need a Remodeling - General Contractor, or a very versatile competent handyman if you already know one - I certainly would not expect a normal handyman to be able to handle all those tasks well.

For just a cabinet for the surround, your Search the List category would be Cabinet Making or a Carpenter - Woodworking. Be sure to size it (in pieces if needed) so it can readily be moved into the house and into place, and check allowable fire clearance to combustible material and required ventilation clearances - that might put a damper on your project because some require up to 6 inches or so clearance all around.
