Nice stove, and nice place! Two questions: Why did you go with a "t" instead of an elbow? I would think an elbow would make for easier cleaning? Getting to that T looks like it ain't going to be fun. What is the piping running outside the house for? If it is for wood burning appliance, it doesn't look braced very well or plumb, and also does not look like it meets the 10/2/3 rule? Not knocking, just curious, and thinking about stability & safety.
