Mybigdickyoulike: The stone conducts heat so he had to use at least 3/4 of an inch of mortar
it would have been easier to use a cement backer board. Thats all he did
wrong. Its ok to lay on the carpet as long as you use a non combustible(
which is the 3/4 '' cement)
William Mcleister: Only half a job... 2 minutes would have cut the carpet
huntingtonbeachify: Great job with the video. Short and complete.
Tim Richardson: Hi Matt! Love your videos! Got a question for you, I am looking to build a
hearth pad on top of a hard wood floor in our dining room, should I use the
metal mesh / lathe [ like you did on the carpet] underneath the stones that
I want to put down or maybe hardyback concrete pads or just mortar? I would
also like to build a stone wall, up the wall behind the wood stove for
extra protection from the heat against the combustables, or is that not
necessary? Thanks, Tim.
robjanlen riegodedios: Where u get the stone?
Maha Laha: Thanks for the Video! I am thinking about Wood Burning Stoves!
mrEnergy511: Hearth Stones are made of concrete. A good place to start is a Brick
Wholesaler or a Masonry Supply. Kodiak Mountain Stone is the brand I used
here in Utah.
mrEnergy511: Any local brick yard will have Hearth Stones. I got these from a local
Brick supplier here in Utah. Thanks for the comment!
John Doer: @polaris6147... Idiot. If he decides to use a double wall pie it's down to
6"... Stop trolling
Tim Richardson: LOVE THIS! Looks AWESOME!
Colwray1: What a pickle!! Slabs on carpet, and leaves all the wood skirting around
it.... Hope a building inspector never shows up!
mrEnergy511: Thank you for your comment! I think about wood stoves and fireplaces every
day! A frestanding wood burning stove is the best wat to heat your home.
Save lots of money!!!
Oysterseagull: No qualified tradesman would cement slabs in place over a carpet! Another
polaris6147: Did the house burn down? I am glad I watched the video. I would never have
left the molding or carpet in place. The install is to close to the wall as
well. 18 inches is minimum, I have 36 and my walls get warm.... His ins co
is gonna use this how to in the claim not to pay.... WoW
John Doer: The hearth is FINE. IT WILL NEVERRRRRRR HEAT UP THE FLOOR
Otsisera Akweks: are these hearth stone cast pavers for patio's or are they made for hearth
stones i can't seem to find them locally.
Rick Chartier: This some half assed stuff!
21kpatriot: Please tell us you changed your mind, took the stone up and took the carpet
/ under padding out and started over before you started using the stove. I
would feel better knowing that you did.
robjanlen riegodedios: Looiii
mrEnergy511: The hearth is rock solid! Doubled up the wire and nailed it down tight. You
can make yours how ever you wish. Thanks for the comment. 2 inches thick is
the requirement for a hearth to combustables.
