My neighbor is a stonemason...and did all the brickwork and stonework in/on my house. He really does great work.

SH, get your local code requirements for clearance from non-combustible wall---I'm about 20" off my rock-board to the back of my stove.I might be wrong, but when I did mine it was 18" from non-combustible--find out yourself & document it, before involving any code people. Yep, that's a real nice hearth area:)
