I’m not a carpenter, but something similar to this was done on a this old house episode. In order to achieve this with limited visible support for the slab of stone I think you would need a custom steel frame with brackets bolted to the framing members in the wall.
Here is a link from the March 2014 public meeting showing the current visual.
My home was burglarized in 2010. I was instructed to compile a detailed list of the missing items with any available receipts, and for those items without receipts to include an estimate of replacement cost and then submit to the insurance company. The adjuster then reviewed the list and made adjustments based on his/her cost estimate and cut a check for the items. I was then able to purchase replacements and if the cost of replacement items was higher than their estimate, I would submit the receipts and be reimbursed for the difference. I believe you must have a policy that approves full replacement cost. I would suggest reviewing your policy in detail, if you have not already. Do you have any damage to the home from forced entry? Those repairs, if any, can be included in the claim and can be quite expensive. I had three damaged doors that were covered for full replacement plus labor as well as wall damage. I just obtained estimates from contractors plus the cost of the doors and submitted it for a full check. Hope that helps.
I want to enjoy this show, but the writing is so bad.
Personally, I am disappointed in the choice of material that was used on the protrusions from the facade of the building. It appears to be a rustic stone or concrete block, and to my eye does not seem very cohesive with the modern look of the rest of the building. A flatter surface stone would have been a better choice.April 14, 2013 7:57 pm at 7:57 pm in reply to: Mound Street Connector Project – I-70/71 Split Fix #539715November 11, 2011 3:46 am at 3:46 am in reply to: Demolition of 700 W.

That development is on a different lot, this lot is on the north side of the street, across the street from the police station.
