Thanks Fred!
joeq wrote:Wow! Check out the muscle power. You could've pulled a diesel motor with that much help. So how much does that slab weigh Josh? I'm guessing 250? Did the base come out the way you wanted? Can't wait to see the finished product. Better hurry. Winter is just a stone throw away. I wish...with the awful heatwave we've been experiencing here in CT. It's been brutal with the humidity. It's like Viet Nam. :(
Yea ! It was easy with this much help and it weighs 500lbs give or take a few lbs. if it was 250lbs I could have done it with one other person. I am not going to finish the whole area before winter . I haven't been making much money working for myself lately. So it will probably get finished next year but its to the point whee I can put this stove up on it this week . The base is cool they did a great job. My first choice was a large piece of whit/gray granite but I couldn't find anyone who would rough cut that for me . They wanted them all polished . Can't have it all I guess . I'm probably going to cover the brick up with stone and still put the pillars in .

Thanks for the kind words guys!

I will put the stove on the hearth this week and I'm going to put up the hardie backer where I want the stone to go and in place of sheet rock. I already have the the hardie board sitting in the garage . I am then going to design a fencing to go around the hearth to keep my little boy safe until he's a little older . I am going to forge the pickets and do a top and bottom flatbar with some hand forged finials as well . Those are things I have to get done before winter . It's amazing how hindering money can be on getting things done !

My wife and I got beast tonight and lifted this thing. I'm really proud of her for finding the strength to pick it up!
I just have to pipe it in now and that's gonna be real right and ill probably have to weld up some custom piping at some point .
It's a little it in the room but will be nice in the winter :)

Thanks! The only thing that is bothering me about it is the floor slopes a little so the stove leans forward slightly no one would notice but I do so it pisses me off every time I look at it . I didn't want to get into leveling the joist under the house and so on . It's 3/4 " out of level . So not huge over 37" . That's how a house from the mid 18th century rolls haha

I think if you partially level the stove by putting 1/2 inch shims under two legs it will not be noticeable, even 1/4 inch would help. See how it looks with some washers as shims.

But the stone is rock faced so trimming it is out if the question and the trim wouldn't look right then. This is the best compromise really. I'm just a perfectionist sometimes .

I meant shim the stove not the hearth stone. Even a small amount would help and if the shims were the same size as the legs would not look bad or even noticeable.

Very nice look.
Shimming with washers or else would be good, many stoves have screws adjuster under the legs. You certainly have the hability :idea: :idea: to make some very small legs extensions longer at the front and lower at the back and that would be almost invisible...or can be visible as an antique part of the whole stove/base/deco...

In sorry I read that wrong. I guess I've been tired lately. I see what you mean and I will probably try this.

You are right I can forge some little fit to fit under the existing legs .
