stone for wood stove hearth


We're putting a wood stove in our living room. My wife wants flagstones. According to the installation manual, three layers of DuRock have sufficient R-Value. So I plan on putting down the DuRock, and then having someone cover it with stone. The rest of the floor will be pre-finished bamboo.

Would it be best to put down the stone first and then the bamboo?

How to detail the bamboo to the stone? Carve each piece to the shape of the stone and then sanded caulk?

What would be a good way to transition between the stone and the drywall?

Are there any types of stone to avoid for this application?

Assuming that u install the flagstone in a defined area. So that it joins up to the bamboo in a straight line than u can install a thresh plate or molding between the two For me it would be easier to work with the flagstone than the bamboo flooring, you can break the stone and mortar it as needed.
