    I am optimistic... I told my wife and she said it took us more like 6 hours.... hhh

    But we did have to stop look for rocks and mix new batches of mortar...

    I ordered the M&G Duravent system. I wanted to get that flashing piece you recommended by ICC but I was told that I will then need to have my stack from ICC as well... I called a place not far from me and they wanted around $1400 before tax and I need to come pick it up. Instead, I ordered from woodstovepro.com.... $700 with tax and free shipping to my door.

    Why did you want to use an Excel flashing? Metal roof I'm guessing, I can remember.

    Flashings are the one item in a chimney system that I feel can be substituted if needed. For instance, only ICC makes a flashing specifically for a metal roof, the other companies seem to just leave you hanging if you have a metal roof. Or offer a flimsy silicone boot or a surface mounted piece of junk. Neither of these options offer a permanent, sturdy installation. Just my opinion.

    Yes because of my metal roof. You think I can use ICC flashing and the rest of the stack from Duravent?

    Please let me know quickly as I will need to change my order. I do want the better roof flashing.

    As long as clearances are met, what is the difference between one non-ventilated flashing and another? Or one ventilated to another? I have replaced lots of leaking silicone boots with this Excel flashing. It's the go to flashing for a metal roof.
    PM me for step by step instruction, I've got pics somewhere I think.

    Can you look at the link I gave for the ICC and confirm that is indeed the right one - size wise and what not?

    That one is for 12/12 and greater pitches. You need 6 pitch or less right?

    You don't have to, but the Dura-vent collar will need a little trimming on the back side. Otherwise it hits the roof before it's low enough.

    I thought they are both from stainless. That's OK though. What kind of screws do I use this with?

    For the entire install you will need several different types and sizes of screws. 2" drywall screws for the ceiling box and 1/2"SS crews for the storm collar, I also use the 1/2" SS screws to attach the pipe to the flashing for added stability.
    You will need some gasketed pole barn screws as well for the roof.

    I'll go over this tonight.. I'll read the installation instructions. Duravent give a step by step or is it more of how do I install each piece?

    Pardon the interruption, but wanted to say great job. You have me dreaming now. Can you post more pictures along the way until she's done?

    Thanks for the compliments!!!

    Next weekend I will fill in the joints, install the blue stone pad, and install the chimney.... hhh.

    By the way, the quarry guy said a 3ft by 3ft by 2" thick stone will weight around 250lbs.... Seems right? I might need to slowly roll it into place with my wife... if I am not back here please look for me under a PA bluestone.

    Hi cabinner...What's an air wall? Also, why did you not go all the way up to the ceiling with the stone? Will you put drywall above the 5 footers?
