I haven't seen insulating bricks, so don't know how well they would hold up. The front entry gets allot of use, well with mine anyway.

I wanted to make the break invisible, certain limitations apply then. Can't say it is really worth it, but If you really wanted to, you could make a more efficient floor break by increasing the width. But, I think you could keep it to 1/2 inch and do a better job than I did with the details of the break. Cut both sides of the floor bricks at the break joint at 45degrees to get as wide a gap as possible. Pack the gap with ceramic blanket and or perlcrete and then just enough refractory mortar on top to create a normal looking joint.
