    Curtis, my Garn supplier has a horizontal exhaust with a vertical chimney and has had no problems in nine years. I have the horizontal/barrel and am satisfied at this time.

  2. An issue that I see with using a horizontal vented garn with an exterior T and chimney is the length of the horizontal flue. I know every Class A chimney that I have installed has specified a maximum length of the horizontal piping (ususally 18-24") Probably wouldnt be an issue in use for the garn if you exceed that length. But it could be considered a code violation. And something for the insurance company to not like.

    Here is the install info for external tee's and vertical chimney from the DuraVent site. They're .pdf files - or just go to the site for the full install document. http://www.duravent.com/Product.aspx?hProduct=1 They also have full dimensions of all the components on the site.

    Thanks for all the input/info guys, I really appreciate it. Im pretty sure that I am going to just go with a small seperate building for the boiler and 8-9 cords of wood storage. Someting around 20x20 I think will work good for me. Will probally with pole barn style framing to save money on not having to do any foundation and just pour a slab in it.
