I must be a bit deranged, I have been building my own house in my spare time...for the last 3 years now. Anyway, I recently started working on my hearth. Sheetrock is in and painted, I am getting the hearth ready for cultured stone. I figured I'd put in some pics if anyone was interested. First pic is the area where the stove will go, showing the framing. I didn't realize the pics aren't at a good angle, the stove will be against a 1/2 wall seperating the living room and dining area. The stove will be on the ledge on the right, the TV/entertainment center to the left of the perpendicular wall. OK, can't get the pic to post!
