I prefer the hinged door with no pivot because they are going to want to screw the pivot through your waterproofing on the floor.

It's not unusual to get hairline cracks in self leveler. I haven't noticed them as much when I use Ardex Liquid Backer Board but I usually cover fairly quickly. You've had yours down for a while.

The drywall looks even with the firebox which is what you want. I would try to scrape down the plaster so that it's even with the firebox and drywall. Then paint some primer over the plaster.
