    I think I've figured out where to put my stove! :) My house is a very open floor plan, with lots of windows and not too many outside walls that I can put a stove on. Anyway, I think I can put the stove in the corner of the dining room, run the vent through the wall into the sunroom, and up out of the roof of the sunroom, and further up above the main roof of the house to stay away from that second floor window. See attached layouts for what I'm doing.

    As you can see from the pictures, I have a big old farmhouse, so I cannot just go straight up from the stove in the same room. I've edited the "real" picture to show where the vent will run outside of the house. As you can see I need to go clear above the main roof of the house to keep the vent opening away from that center upstairs window.

    This locates the stove more or less in the center of the downstairs, and should let the heat flow throughout the downstairs and up the open stairway to upstairs.

    The cleanout T will end up in the sunroom, but I don't anticipate that being a problem. I also realize I will most likely need to use 4" pipe, because of the EVL.

    Thoughts anyone?

    Thanks in advance!

    Run the vent inside the house and box it in on the second floor, thats what I did. Although mine goes through a closet.
    I personally don't care for the look of an exposed vertical run. my .02

    I can't box it in on the second floor, there is a bathroom directly above this location. No closet or anything. I'm tellin' ya, this house is a difficult one for locating a stove :).

    Don't get me wrong, though, the comments and suggestions are much appreciated, thank you very much :).
