    Welcome to the forum. Is that a 6" stack or 8" stack on that beast?

    its and 8 incher, i had one just like this in a old garage and she had a healthy appetite, im using it to heat about 1600 sq. ft. and my downstairs walls where the stove will be are being framed with 2x12s so i will have a ton of insulation in my walls, and heat to spare

    Welcome! I just did an image search. All the new stoves have glass doors now, but that mountain scene is quite nice.

    No doubt that they can chew through the wood. 8" pipe is pretty pricey.

    yup $400 for the stove and about $1700 in selkirk double wall pipe and chimney by the time im done, i somehow knew the pipe wa sgoing to be more, ithis will be my first expeirience with double wall, it helps a little because my friends a manager at ACE Hardware here and can get me about 30% off the pipe so it will be a bit cheaper than the figure i posted

    For a total of $2100 are you sure you want to install a smoke dragon? Just asking, because you are in the range of new.

    i thought of that before i bought this one, but either way i have to do the pipe and chimney so the price will be less than a newer stove plus the pipe and chimney, and the only newer stoves i could find were all glass doors for some reason?

    Absolutely your call, but just to add...the 6" stuff is cheaper than 8" pipe. You will go through much less wood (less work, less loading and longer burn times). And you don't want to look at the fire??

    And - if later down the road you DO want to get a new stove, it probably will require a 6" pipe unless you go with a monster like the BKK. Just throwing it out for thought.

    im always cutting wood so consumption isnt really a care, i thought of putting a reducer to make it a 6 inch pipe but im not sure if thats a safe or sane way to go?

    the reason i dont want to see the fire is i was nearly killed in a house fire twice in my sleep in my 35 year life from electrical problems and its just too alarming for me to see the flames at night

    Unique situations require unique solutions. As I said, absolutely your call (unless you have regs in place that don't allow for a pre EPA to be installed, or an insurance company that will give you fits.)

    Sometimes reducing the pipe for a new stove works, sometimes it don't.

    im all set with codes and enforcements, they dont care what kind of stove i use as long as its not rusty and they need to approve the hookup and chimney, i have never installed one in a house only garages so i need to do it all on the up and up, but thats how i want it anyhow, my insurance just requires me to have the codes guy sign off on it and then they have a person come out and check it out and im done

    and thank you all for the welcomes!

    Welcome to the board..I put in an Englander 30 with 26 ft of 6in. stainless steel pipe up the outside for right around $2100. the only thing wrong with glass doors is you can see what is going on inside the stove and you can actually enjoy the fire.:) I had a fisher grand father and sold it to get the Englander with the glass. My wife is glad I got rid of the steel door stove.
