    Looks great. I need to do the exact same thing - my setup is similar, though I need to come out 18" (3 - 6" tiles). What did you use under the tile? What was stopping you from just going right on top of the existing floor?

    At first i thought about putting it over the floor but decided against it because i wanted it to be even with the floor if possible.It was more work but in the end i thought i made the right decision.Area adjacent to the hearth was pretty uneven so used a patch and level mix to smooth and level the area then did abit of sanding before i was able to put down the tile.Im hoping to get a blazing fire pic of the stove!Tried it once but came out very poor!think it was the flash.
