I found a small wood stove for my trout cabin. It is very old and there arent any real resources online for things like this. Its a fairly common design, I believe its known as a laundry stove. It seems to be missing a bottom section. I think its supposed to sit higher up off the ground maybe with some small decorative feet or something. What would you suggest I use instead? Also it seems to have a 8" exhaust pipe fitting. Does that seems too large, could it be down graded to 6 or 4? Its missing the flue piece as well(if it ever had one) do I need one of those? In such a small place(8'x12' cabin) should I add a small fresh air inlet near the stove? Do you suggest side or vertical shaft for the exhaust? Lastly, do you put an ash pan in the bottom or just use a little shovel when it gets full? If so what material do you make an ash pan out of? Sorry about so many question but I needed the help the boot is a size 12 16in tall muck boot for a size reference. Thought that might be needed for exhaust pipe size. Thanks for any advice you can give me.
