    Wow some really nice hearth pics in this thread. I kinda wish I'd designed for a raised hearth now, based on all the + comments here. I love the way my hearth looks but it would be nice to sit right beside the stove, and I'm not gettin' any younger so the easier loading would be really nice too. live and learn...

    It's kind of funny but I am in the process of lowering my hearth to make it flush with surrounding floor. Maybe I'll find out that I wish I had raised it, but with a fireplace insert, raising would be more of an issue.

    The reason I want it flush though is because of our not so terribly large living room, I didn't want to give up the floor space. There still won't be anything on the hearth but having the walking space actually makes a difference to me.

    To each's own.
