    No rear protection is required, all clearances have been met plus a bit. The Rangely features a rear heat shield in conjunction with Double wall pipe/ appliance connector it brings the rear clearance pretty tight.

    That is one sharp looking install. Looks fantastic, every last bit of it. All the elements meld and contribute to one sweet setup. Congrats! Very well done!!!

    Very nice. I used black granite for our hearth and it really does look nice with the flames reflecting off it.

    Did you clean your splits for the pictures? ;)

    Only thing I will say is be careful with embers popping out and dropping off the ash lip. I find with our downstairs stove, embers sometimes drop out and just roll right off the hearth pad sometimes. I If I ever get to replacing the hearth pad downstairs, I've been thinking about getting granite and having them mill the middle down a little to create a lip on the outside edge to cath any falling embers/debris. With that nice floor, I'd be paranoid that I'd drop embers and burn it.
