I would not recommend using marble. Marble is fragile and will crack (the veins are actually "fault lines"). Go with a granite or even better a tile that is made to stay outside in freezing temps (you can get them that look like marble, granite, slate, etc). Use the flexible ad mix with the grout and adhesive. Has anyone used any of those lightweight blocks that they sell for BBQ grills as firebrick? Those would weigh a lot less than firebrick. You can buy a grate at most anyplace that sell woodstove parts (we got one for a 80 yr old $25 Franklin stove from a general hardware store once). Make sure you check the gaskets on the doors and seal up any seam gaps. Now is a good time to make repairs and I would recommend firing it up outside if you refinish it (lots of smoke & fumes from a newly refinished stove takes a while to air out rooms... guess how I know )

Wood Stove

Thanks! Thats good info. Slate is probably the right choice for the decor anyway - I'm going for a New England seashore cottage look, white painted woodwork, bead-board paneling.

Thanks for the link! The stove looks nice - very cozy to have fire on a cold day!

Alas there is no room for a stove in my bus after all, having a separate bunk room for the kids ate up all my stove space!

Ah well, maybe after they're off at college . . . .


Cheers!

Re: Wood stove

Hate to say it but that post reads more like spam advertisement than an actual post.
