Default One More Step Closer.......

One last step closer to having my wood stove in by winter. Its a LOT more work than I thought, but itll be well worth it here in PA. The stove copany is fro the same town as Lodge. I thought that was cool.

Are you using an old window opening? What are you doing for a chimney outside or just double-walled pipe? Cool stove you have there.

Thanks.....the window is now firebaord, the top is still glass. I have an old house, so its single pane glass, but we put the bottom window up and sealed it tight, so its almost like double pane glass. The Stove pipe is double wall going thru the fireboard in the window. The rest of it is just single wall stove pipe and brackets. Its been a trip doing this.....Got it done today. Ill post pics soon.

as a side note, I got the wrong caulking I guess, so I re did it this morning with 2000 degree caulk.

I didnt like to put on the stove pipe tape, but I had too. This is an ongoing project for me and my wife, and I THINK we are done.........gotta hang the fireboard to the walls, but thats it.

I would also put a spark arresting can on the top of the outside pipe. I use a stove like yours to heat my shop and found a small fan blowing on the stove helped circulate the heat.

maybe put some stove black or high temp paint on the aluminum tape to make it blend in better.

Thanks for the ideas.....we put a rain cap on the pipe, so far so good. I may try to paint that tape,,I hated to use the tape, but caulking just wasnt enough. Its where the double wall meets the single wall pipe. Had our first real fire last night, no smoke, lol.....I almost gave up.

Got it up and running, just a few odds and ends. Went to make a fire this morning, no go........then I read online that the flu needs primed, or heated up. I used a hair dryer and it worked really well. Im good to go for the winter. I have a freind that can get my kiln dried oak wood anytime I wanna haul it, so thats great!

Well, I d say I saved at least 400 dollars so far for heat. Probably more. I have about 900 into installing it, so Im half way to paying for itself already.
