I would do it in an olive or deep green tile with a contrasting brown, mustard or black border. These colors were popular during the Craftsman Era, which the stove comes out of. It would also match the floor and the wall color. And the nickel on the stove would pop out and the whole corner would be a beautiful ensemble which would tie everything together

Alright Keith!

You are doing better than me right now. I haven't touched my stoves other than to keep it burning.

I like the vent idea!

I like that black boarder idea, back in my younger days I did my carpet that way with a black boarder on forest green carpet and it looked very nice.
Have any pictures like your describing ?

Here are few examples of authentic Craftsman Style fireplaces. Our stoves were made during this style period, approximately 1905-1925. This would set off the stove just right.

William can you even buy good tile like that anymore other than salvage? I know tiles from this period go for a pretty penny Somtimes at the reclamation / salvage yards. That color green is very nice

Thanks for the pictures William, gives me an idea what to look for. Those are definately more intricate then I want to install here and since the wife already picked out the tile and its on site im going to continue on but I will be checking into a black tile to use as a boarder and see how i like it as you suggested.

I had to stay late tonight at work for a conference call but I did manage to get the frame finished and secured to the wall. Progress is slow at best.

Some progress is better than no progress right?

It is looking really good. All your angles look good and appealing to the eye. Looking forward to see what's next :)

Found a pretty neat product at Lowe's i thought i would try. They say it reflects 96% radiant heat, dont know how true it is but it has to help more then hurt. I ran out pretty quickly so I need to stop and grab another roll, my crown needs cut still at the ceiling so thats why it isnt stapled at the top. After i get all the wall covered i will go back and tape all the seams with some reflective hvac tape then i can add my spacers and begin the durock cement board.

I used that same stuff to line the trunk of one of my Volvo 240's . It's good stuff and is 75% cheaper than dynomat !

Looks good !

Thanks fellas,
This project (the hearth) is turning into being more intensive and expensive then I originally thought it would be, seems like every time I turn around I need to buy something else for the next step.

Josh, it is a pretty cool product for sure but I can't seem to figure out why you would line a trunk ?

Well it is good for sound dampening and it helps hold the carpet in place and pads
The metal from anything that gets dumped in there . It also works great for keeping groceries cool in the summer. It can be 100 degrees outside but the trunk is nice and cool. I am going to line the ceiling in the wagon with this stuff as well after I pair it white. I'm all about reduce internal heat in a vehicle!

As far as te project becoming more expensive well that reminds me of my cedar closet. I used rough cut aromatic cedar and it ended up being a couple hundred dollars . Oh well it's the best damn cedar closet you'll find!

When you're done with your project you can feel like its the best hearth around ;)

:D ok, I follow you now, I can see where it would be good for that. I will have to remember that when I put headers on the Pontiac this winter to keep the heat away from inside the car.

Very good job Keith, you seem to love perfection for what you do and it's perfect :) Take the time needed and you will be satisfied when relaxing in front of the stove's set up.
Just don't forget to keep the curtains far from the hot Glenwood, these stoves can eat all they can :D
