Hi Guys, first post so please take it easy on the Newbie. I am sure the answer is here somewhere but I am doing a major remodel on my house right now and am getting about 3 hours sleep a night. Does anyone have some solid/ easy links to build a hearth for an Englander NC-30? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am going to be building a hearth on a plywood floor and have no access Micore, at least I havent been able to find any in madison, wi. The pipe is going straight up through the ceiling. The ceiling is 8 ft high. I am not putting it in a corner, I am going to try to get it close to a a interior wall as my home is not very big, 1200 square feet. Also, is the stove overkill? I plan on heating my home as much as possible with it and want a long burn time. Ended up getting the englander 30 for $700 from Home depot. I will give the inside story on how to do that soon. Looking to put slate tile on top of the hearth and 1 inch brick on the wall. Thanks in advance.
