    Hi all I recently became the owner of a small 6.4kw Stanley stove. As there was never a fireplace in my house I need some advice. The plan is to build a small slate hearth for the stove to sit on. I have a nice old Victorian cast iron fire surround which will be fitted to the wall and half inch fireboard to protect the plaster. I will be using a rear exit flue which will pass through the cavity wall then up the outside of the house. First question, if i attach battons to the wall and nail the fireboard to this creating a 1" gap how far from the fire board must the stove be? secondly can I run the flue out through the wall horizontally and attach a 90 degree bend to run the flue up the wall, or should I attach a 45 degree bend soon after leaving the stove and another 45 degree bend once the flue is outside? Thirdly, I have a lot of used twinwall flue but am not sure how to fit it to the stove. Should I use a small section of single vitreous flue about 3" long coming from the flue then the twin wall? cheers in advance, J
