    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.

    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.
