    It's a good company with excellent product support. The chimney height should be about 15ft. for the Progress and 14 ft for the Fireview. Definitely install with an insulated liner. If you choose the Progress you will need to order it with the short leg kit to clear the 27" lintel on the fireplace.

    Well, then the rule should be, "anything but oak." I can tell you first-hand that 1-year oak will not burn in your stove. Learned that myself this fall, when I'd almost snuff out the fire every time I loaded any 1-year split oak.

    I had thought that Ash grew everywhere Oak grew, but I could be wrong. I'm not that far from you, and we have plenty of Ash around here, but perhaps it's not tolerant to the salt air?

    Nah, oak out the wazoo here, ~100 miles inland, and ash is relatively rare. Dunno why. Too warm maybe? Waiting for oak to dry is getting old. . .

    +1 on this question.
    Class A pipe or one of Craig's fancy extenders?
    Might cost a bit, but maybe OP wouldn't mind paying extra to be able to put the stove upstairs. . .
