I installed a wood stove myself.. Pics.
Wasn't to hard at all. Took a few hours but its done and looks good. I had it on for 2 hours. Living room went from 53 degrees to 68 in 2 hours.
I did notice the sheetrock next to it was hot to the touch! It is 8 inches away on the left and 15 on the right. Manufactuer says 7" is minimum.
I still have just a couple of things to do after that test run:
~ Cut out hole little bigger on roof since pipe is close to plywood.
~ Frame out pipe under roof maybe put fire blocker.
~ Find better floor protection and maybe add firecode sheetrock on wall behind it. (not sure what else to use for the wall.
