Sorry for another one of these threads. I've read just about all of the hearth threads on this forum in hopes of not having to post another.. Here it goes : I have a Jotul F600 #1) From what I understand (thanks to BG) I don't need much in the way of floor protection. There's no specific R Value listed in the manual. Thoughts? #2) Please see pics attached. I taped out a 48"x48" board and the cardboard in the middle is the footprint of the stove. Issue #1 is the baseboard heater.. If I fabricate my own board I can just cut around it correct? If I buy a board, what are my options?? issue #2 is clearances. As it lays now, all the clearances seem ok although the actual size of the board is smaller than the one listed in the manual. Is this ok to do? i'm thinking that some extra wall protection might be in order as well.. I'm having a pre-fab installed on the left hand wall. All the materials are in so the chimney co is ready to go. We've been going back and forth about floor and the possibility of wall protection. They were talking to me about a product called R-CO. I guess they can custom cut it to go around the baseboard and possibly around the molding for the window. Oh yeah, Did I mention the dollars are adding up fast too I need some advice. I know I can cut my cost way down if I build my own hearth but I have a newborn son and time/energy are at an all time low at my house!! Thank you!
