Freestanding Wood burning stove
Looking for information on freestanding wood stoves. Bought a vacation home that has a "pretty cool looking newer black w/ copper trim freestanding wood burning stove" in the corner of a room. Naturally I am concerned with safety- so while remodeling I want to do the right thing. Currently this stove about 2' from a corner sitting on "ceramic tile". with z-brick on the walls. The stove has legs about 10" high and has a chimney that go's through the roof with a hood/cap with screen big enough for wasps to get in the house. I want to pull the stove out & re-do the floor under the stove & the corner walls. Is brick my least expensive SAFE option or do I have other options. NOTE: I would like to use this stove occasionally.
*This is a vacation home, next time I get down there I will take some pictures & post them. Thanks for any suggestions.
