    Thanks begreen.
    What brand of chimney do most people have good luck with? Lowes sells Selkirk Supervent. And local stove shops sell a variety of brands. I hesitate to buy from an online retailer that charges a restocking fee should I need to return anything.

    Figured I post a couple more pictures of the painfully slow progress... Just have a lot of other stuff going on so I don't get to work on it much. Anyway, I took out some drywall that was damaged and found that the insulation in the two stud bays directly behind the stove was a little toasty and dark. The only thing between the insulation was one layer of brick and one layer of drywall. So I replaced all of the insulation in the picture.
    Also ripped up the floor down to the subfloor. On top of the T&G boards used as subfloor there was a thin layer of foil paper of some sort. I left it and laid down a layer of 3/8" plywood. Plan on putting one layer of durock nextgen on top of that and then hopefully start the tile this weekend. Busy weekend planned so probably won't get much more done.
