Basement chimnet access
Our home was built with a sort of double chimney. The big one with the big cap services the family room (gas log set) The second one that runs right along side it apparently is in the basement. Will we ever connect a pellet stove or somethong...who knows. Right now the opening is stuffed with fg insulation. What is the propper way to frame around this hole? There is also an Ash cleanout which we will never use below the hole. Should I just drywall over all this and if we ever decide to use a pellet stove then just open the wall? Is that code compliant? Am I better off installing one of those little sqaure pass thru type door things here?
