Rather than researching what I actually need for our house, I fell in love with a wood stove insert and determined to get one and restore it. I finally found a model on Craigslist 4 hours from home, and I paid $300. It's a Country Comfort (I think cc300) behemoth, and once we got it into our garage I set right into polishing all that beautiful brass. So, we have a spot for it in the house . . . but no chimney. I thought I could just run a vent up through the ceiling, then build a box surround. Now a friend says no, wood stove inserts are for inserting into an existing fireplace. Yes. I don't know much about these things.Is there anything I can do, or must I sell my beautiful insert and start from scratch?
