Hello everyone. Guess this will be my introduction post too. This past year my wife and I were fortunate enough to build a new home. At the time we had an exterior masonary chimny built. Our home is around 2200sqft. After talking with a friend of mine (skier76 from the forum), I was sold on a Jotul Oslo. Looks and hopefully the performance I was looking for. We are running a bottom and rear heat shield and double walled pipe in a corner mounted setup. Well now it's installed and I'm struggling. I performed my 3 break in fires as described. So tonight after work was going to be my first full fledged fire. Letting it rip and warming the house. Well so I thought. I struggled to get the stove barely up to 300 degrees. I can barely keep the fire going with the door closed. With it craced, it gets going but dies down once I lock the door. Damper is wide open and air control is wide open. Now, I'm wondering what the issue is and if I'll be able to burn successfully this winter. Tonights temp is in the low to mid 20's with some wind. Two things I need to do, is get a moisture meter and check my wood. Secondly I think I need chimney cap. From what I read that can help your draft. To help with suggestions...here's some pictures. Everyone likes pictures. Sorry for the poor quality. These are all taken with my cell phone. Here's the room the stove is going in. The stove will be in the opposite corner of the TV. Turn a 180 and it's wide open to the kitchen/dining room. "Rough" hearth layout. Just getting an idea with clearances per Jotul's specs. Here's some of the stone we used. This is New England Thinstones. First the base was laid using some subfloor paper. Then concrete board. On top of that 3" block was laid. Finished with sheetrock removed to meet the 6" to combustible requirement for the double walled pipe. Finished install. Stove is 10" off wall at the corners and surprisinglike is 25"'s from the nearest window even though it does not look it by the picture.
