    The F50 or F55 would work fine.

    I heated with a Woodstock Fireview for many years, and with a Woodstock Progress Hybrid the past two years. My hearth protection is a slab purchased through Woodstock that is just over an inch thick. It sits on wide board oak floors, which are sitting on plywood, which is sitting on Doug Fir joists.. No problem at all.

    Isn't that specially designed material? Does 1" bluestone have the r-value I need?

    We are the clearances on the Jotul F50 and F55 so good?

    yes, it's a hearth pad with good R value. But quite thin.
    if you need more than ember protection for your hearth, I don't think stone will fly. But if you really wanted a Woodstock, you could top the bluestone with something very thin. Otherwise, there are quite a few stoves that only require ember protection.
