    Yes the chimney will be replaced. Since the stove company was five to six weeks out on installs, I left the old chimney, rain cap, and storm collar in till then.

    Update: After being down and out for about a week with bronchitis, I've finally managed to get the hearth pad tiled. Now I have to wait a few days before grouting and finally calling it good. Well except for the wall stone. Man it seems like it never ends. On the plus side I found a local logging company that said they have about 50 truck loads of splits laying in their yard that they will give me for free. I just have to go get them. They said most have been laying there for several years, so hopefully they are pretty much seasoned. According to them it's all hickory and walnut. Score one for me.

    Update: Finally had my install today. The guys showed up right on time and got it installed perfectly. Now only to finish the wall stone and mantle. My chimney is a heck of a lot taller than the old one... Kinda suprised me. What do you think?? right side.JPG left side.JPG chimney.JPG center.JPG

    Looks beautiful and the taller chimney you will be thankful for. Should help the stove overall in all weather. Both shoulder seasons when draft can be weak and in the dead of Winter, it will allow you to shut it down a little more.

    Congrats. Thats gonna be beautiful when finished

    Update: Everything is done except for the mantle. I have started burning pretty regulary, and wow this thing will throw out the heat. I can throw two splits in and it will burn all night and leave me a nice bed of coals in the morning. It is something to see when the secondarys light and take off. Anyways here's a couple pictures of the mostly completed project and one of it burning. Let me know what you think. stove.jpg fire.jpg

    Are you going to use metal lath on the wall and then mortar the stone to it? Nothing is going to adhere to painted dry wall for very long.

    I put up the stone on the wall using loc tite adhesive. I haven't had any problems with the stones coming loose, even with the stove running around 550-600 degrees. The heat shields on this stove are amazing. The stone isn't even hot to the touch.

    Normally adhesive is not used near a wood stove. Most are combustible and are not rated for service much above 120F. It's good to hear the walls are staying cool and that the stove has nice shielding.

    The clearances from the corners are only 3 inches, but i'm almost six inches from the corners. I wanted to make sure nothing got to warm.
