    Hi,

    I've got a 5kW wood burner in my lounge and I'm gonna put some brick slips on the inside of the fireplace.

    As its only a small area and I'm using "rustic" slips, I'm gonna do it myself.

    My questions are:

    Do I need any special heat resistant adhesive?
    For the grouting, can I just use mortar? It is there a special mortar looking grout I have to use?

    Thanks.

    Dr P - this post is quite old now, but in case you see this message - did your brick slips crack? I'm having a wood burning stove fitted in front of a flat brick + plastered exterior cavity wall so the flue will be going through the wall. I was wondering do I still need a heat resistant board behind the burner if I'm going to put brick slips on the whole wall like this;

    and if so, should I attempt to sink the board into the plaster, or raise the wall beside the board so that I have a flat surface to work on with the slips?

    Thanks!
