    All done.

    It's not trimmed yet, but that's because we're planning on laying carpet in this room soon.

    Now instead of looking like I just stuck an insert into my fireplace (which is what I did), it looks like the hearth was designed for the insert (which it now was) :cheese:

    Before and after....

    Looks good.

    I'm actually working on my own hearth extension right now - I got the Durock down a couple weeks ago, but just got my cheapo HF tile saw this weekend, so I've been figuring out how to use the saw and then cut and dry lay my random size slate flooring - I've got about 3/4s of the 12' long by 18" wide strip layed out. Tomorrow I get to finish doing the dry layout and write it all down - maybe even start doing the wet lay, but that will depend on the timing - I have to worry about being ready for Town Meeting tomorrow night.

    However I will definitely have the slate down by this weekend, not sure about the grout.
