I fancy using slate tiles for a hearth and back.
So it would be 4 x 30cm square tiles for a 1.2m length hearth
but how should I build up the height to the usual hearth depth?

Paving slabs.
300 square x 50mm would be about right I reckon.

To reply by e-mail, change the ' + ' to 'plus'.

I've just done a search and it seems that a hearth should be a minimum
of 15" or 40cm deep.
I also want to keep the cost down so buying 2" thick slate sounds
I'm now thinking of 40cm square slate tiles that would be about
10/12mm thick.
