    i believe if you go to a hearth store (fireplace and hearth) they have heart pads you can buy for protecting the wall from heat!

    Stone will protect the wall as well as look beautiful. We are going to be doing this fireplace but will also do similar look behind our pellet stove.

      Thanks Lynn, You gave me an idea. This wall looks nice except of the colour. I find it too dark. I will surf the net for a paint that you use on hot surfaces.

    Buy sheet foam (4’ x 8’j at HD. Cut it to the size toy like. Attach to wall (studs) with only a couple of nails. Check Amazon and others for metal or faux-metal heat-safe Ceiling tiles. Glue, double face tape, and staple them onto foam board. Paint and fit wood trim to cover edges.

    Thanks Sharon. They do have them, here in France, but they are very expensive and they come in panels of 1m20 high, so if I want to cover the whole hight of the wall, I need 2 minimum : 250 euros......
    However, I could put strips of stone but there isn't much choice in colours : grey, red brick or sandstone colour but those are very big in size.

    Before you put anything behind your stove, check your county or local building code to see how far away from the wall your stove has to be due to the heat the stove will emit if your stove is already installed. As I remember, when we put up our stone tiled wall, we had to have an air space, a false wall, then the stone. I forget how far away from the wall the stove had to be. If it is not to code, and you have a fire, your insurance may not pay out.

    I know Sal. On the publicity photos, they always put those stoves against the wall. In my previous house, there was a space of 20 cm behind the woodburner (with strips of stone against the drywall). I have a friend with a licence for installing fireplaces. I will ask him to install the woodburner and connect it to the existing chimney. That's work for a professionnal.
