I am building a house and wanted to share some pics of our stove installation with you. I have been an avid reader of this forum for a while and your advice helped me decide on this route for my install. A bit of background on my burning: I have burned wood for 10 years now. I have burned with a Fisher Papa, Mama, and Baby Bear (in different houses) and currently a Craft Stove insert. I have access to all the firewood I will ever need and all the tools (hydraulic splitter, Stihl 064, MS310, 025) to keep me stocked up as well as my father and grandfather. I (or maybe the wife) just got tired of all the mess with wood, but I still love the fact that you can create your own heat with it. This is our compromise: A pellet burner on the main level and my Fisher Papa Bear in the basement. The house would be best described as an A-Frame with two wings on a full daylight basement. We have the Harman Accentra Insert in the main living area so she can just pour some pellets in the hopper instead of wrestling firewood. I wanted the Fisher in the basement so we can have heat even if the power goes out. This is the stove installed. The hearth is not built yet, You can see the pipe from the basement here. Side view of framing. Right side showing both venting. Another view of the front Perspective shot showing main living area, windows and view! Rear of installation. This shows the zero clearance box the stove is mounted in. Basement install with the Fisher Papa Bear. Fisher showing the non-combustible shield on the corner wall. Another pic of the Fisher. Pic of the Fisher from the rear. Looks like I reached the 10 pic max for this post. I welcome any comments on this install, let me know what you think!
