    Thanks for the quick reply. I would love to get that part done today. So, there are no screws holding it to the floor, usually? That would be great. So, do you just unscrew the surround screws and the screws holding the pipe to the stove, and then pull? Does the stove just come out and the pipe falls? What about the fire stop...is the pipe connected to that or does it just pass through it? Thanks again.

    I don't think mine had screws, but maybe a few. I had to cut the chimney but most screw on I think. The chimney just passes through the firestop.

    Be careful with your fingers as your separating the chimney from the prefab. And yes the chimney will just fall. The whole process is a bit awkward but not terribly time consuming.

    Thanks. I was impatient and before your reply I grabbed my maul and hit the back of it against the side of the pipe, a few inches above the connection to the stove until it moved to the side of the stove. Then, I was able to easily grab the top of the stove and tilt it forward. 10 minutes of work. Then, after getting the stove out I just moved the bottom of the pipe to the side and wiggled it at the joint until it fell. Rinse, repeat 4 times until all the pipe was out.
