Hi I currently burn a Jotul 3td in my house. Its vented out the top about 4ft then turns 90 degrees through the wall to a 15" square brick chimney that goes up 1.5 stories about 6' above the roofline. Works just fine. There is NO fireplace but there is a 5' square slate pad it all sits on. I want a fireplace vrs the woodstove sitting in the middle of my living room. Here is what I was thinking - please weigh in on my plan. 1. take my 16lb maul and knock down the brick chimney to a point where I can rest a pre built fireplace. (what are those things called again?) 2. Have a pro install the proper fireplace and chimney system. (multi wall pipe solution) to the outside of the house 3. frame and side the chimney to match the house siding. 4. build a hearth about 12" or so off floor in living room. 5. place Jotul on hearth, vent out rear up the chimney. 6. enjoy the living room which now has a proper (reasonably priced) fireplace and chimney system What do you all think???
