    It's almost complete - finally! - still needs grout.
    Here are some build details:
    framing is steel stud, then 1 layer of sheet metal, then 3 layers of 1/2" durock, then the slate tile
    Stove is a Hearthstone Shelbourne cast iron
    Wall shield will be 1/2" durock spaced 1" from wall and covered with 2' x 2' tin ceiling tiles. The tiles are antique bronze and have an embossed pattern.
    I'll follow up as that come together.
    Have a great day.

    That looks marvelous; you did a very good job of creating your own hearth pad! I really like the slate that you picked out. You will enjoy the warmth and ambiance of your new wood stove, not to mention the energy savings. It will add value to your home as well. Thanks for sharing the photos.

    Yes excellent job. We are anxious to see the heat shield walls. That is a great idea with the tin panels. I love tin panel ceilings. Send when complete. Thanks for sharing.

    Metal studs leftover from another job
    durock 6 x $8.50ish
    screws / mortar / thinset - $40
    Tile on sale at HD - $85 including the border - they were more expensive than the 12 x 12s.

    Thanks for the compliments.

    well, I would say that that is a hell of a deal, minus your time. I paid $350 for an American Panel Hearthpad, which I absolutly love but if I had the skills to build my own I would have

    Nice job on the hearth. Is it real slate? What did you use for grout?

    OHHHHHH you are messing it all up! Get the stove off there. :)

    That hearth looks too nice to put any stove on it!

    Nice work to go along with the well thought out idea. I am envious.
