Did this video help you?

Mission Dan: carpet.... fail! 

David Brighina: stopped watching when you did this over the carpet

Martin Skyrman: I do not see that installing over carpet is a good idea. The carpet will compress when weight ( a person's step for example) is applied and crack the mortar as well as grout between the tiles.

Chris R: I would rather eat spaghetti out of a colostomy bag before i put cement on my carpet. One word HACK!!!

milesff7: You lost all credibility when you didn't properly cut out the carpet and wall trim. Lazy, lazy.......

eilidh scammell: Can't believe he's done this OVER carpet! Unbelievable!....

UnstoppableLuck: fuc ku

Devnt Met: Pretty sure the carpet has to come up. Kinda is a "big deal".

Daniel Rundle: I hope your plastic blinds don't melt....

Sam Ragan: do you have to insulate the walls with anything special

Sum1stolmypants: Wow do not follow this build

CanYouFlyBackwards: You have got to be kidding me right? You just put thin-set over carpet? 

David Noel: Over carpet? And baseboards? Laaaaaazy....

E Cole: This guy does this for money? He hasnt done one install to code and he is liable for each one he touches. This hearth does not meet code, sitting on a non combustible does not count. Heat can transfer through the mortar joints. Those stones have to be on a piece of cement board with a piece of 24guage metal in their as well.

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.

William Mcleister: Only half a job... 2 minutes would have cut the carpet

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 cowboy builder!

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

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)

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.
