    Ouch. Same height as the flue collar with the six inch legs. Easy to see why the installer says it won't work. I had 32" and it was tight to work in there.

    Thank you all for your suggestions and help. Totally my fault. I wanted an Englander badly to see if it lived up to the hype. Just much easier to go with a different stove. If I choose to go freestanding in a few years, then its going to be an Englander. Wish me luck with the Regency I3100. I did read some good reviews. My Napoleon 1402 was fine, it did eat a good amount of wood. Just looking for a little more heat for the wife over the winter.

    This might make you feel a little better about money spent on a Regency :)

    ... and he could carry the stove to the woodpile for each reload, instead of the other way around!

    Very informative video. Looks like I did not follow the manufactures recommended break-in procedure.
    What is the best way to get my stove up on the roof?;)

    Apparently, a forklift. If it doesn't quite reach, you can stack some pallets on the tines. 'Cause that's safe.

    Yeah, I laughed out loud the first time I saw it. I'd bet though that the Englander would just as easily stand up to such abuse!

    Why can't you just return the stove to the store?
