    Part 1:

    Creation of the hearth for the T6. Many weeks of learning on hearth.com. Many days of layouts after selecting the Pacific Energy T6. One day of sketching design for mason. 3 days of mason work (not me!)

    Now you're cooking! The stove and installation looks beautiful. I'm looking forward to hearing how it does in mid-winter with a load of black locust. That will be my stove chow next year.

    Thanks. The single piece of hearthstone is ny state bluestone. there are many color variations within different regions of the state. The mason did a great job cutting and shaping the single piece to my specs. He actually wanted to bring in a single piece 6"-8" thick, but we requested the 2-3" piece on top of a course of wall materiel. The walls are a mix of "two different types of granite" (per mason) and dolamitic limestone. The mason picked out the piece of bluestone when he was cutting shaping the wall material, he had an excellent "artistic" eye for matching colors.

    We had a two hearths constructed at a previous home where we used bluestone for the hearth, one piece of Helderberg Bluestone that was dark gray black sorta what I remember the color of our grade school chalk boards. And another from a different region of the state that was more gray/green. So if you are considering it, make sure the wife takes a look at it before hand as the colors can be quite different!

    That's great! I love how the hearth isn't all square and symmetrical. Really gives it a lot of character.

    It is isn't it? It's a good reference post for those folks that are undecided about where to put a stove and also keep the chimney in the house too.

    Thanks,

    the "soft" heat off the T6 is one of the features we like about the stove, it puts out the heat, without putting you out of the room...
