Hello, I am in the final phase of new home construction planning and have a question about stove clearances. The LR measures 24 ft. long by 12'wide; the stove(Woodstock Fireview)would be centered on the outside wall of this room, then stove pipe thru wall into a Metal chimney running up the outside of the house. I am planning on doing a chase to enclose the metal chimney on the outside. Per Woodstock's guidelines for rear clearances for this stove, they call for 36'' w/o a heat shield; 18'' w/ a heat shield. Is there a way that I can have the builder do some type of different construction for that part of the wall where the stove is to reduce clearances? My concern is that with a width of only 12 ft., I do not want the stove on a hearth to be sticking way out into the room. Can I do something similar to a pre-fab FP firebox where the stove could be backed up to the FP box, then have the stovepipe go up thru that? I will have to go thru the outside wall of the house w/ the chimney; there is a room directly above the LR, so I cannot go straight up and out. Thanks in advance for your help/suggestions.
