    Finally bit the bullet, pulled the trigger, whatever. Ordered the NC30 yesterday, and it's now awaiting shipment.
    Thanks all for hanging with me on this.

    I did.
    Was wondering if the order was going to go through.
    It's tentatively due here by 3-19 to 3-25.
    I need to get some dblwall stove pipe and maybe the stove adapter.
    Any advice on the adapter?

    I like to think I'm a self-starter. Proactive, so to speak.;lol
    I've kept it out of sight since 2010, when I built the hearth to fit the 30.

    If you are getting six inch double wall the inner pipe should fit in the flue collar fine and the outer will fit outside of it.

    Good info., Thanks.
    Yep, 6" into Selkirk ceiling support adapter.
    I can get Duratech locally, or do I need to get Selkirk?
    I'm doing the telescoping piece.

    Way to go, Dave! I'm pretty sure you'll be happy with your purchase even though you made such a hasty decision. ;) ;lol
    I don't know if you could mix those two but I'd go all Selkirk. Worked great for us at my BIL's when we set up the Fireview over there. The hack installer had mixed components, Selkirk class A and ceiling support, different stove pipe when originally installing the Resolute, and it wasn't pretty....

    Agreed. Keep with the same brand for the connector to have the least problems.

    There is some Dbl wall on my 30 and it sets right inside the stove neck like BB said. Congrats - great stove for sure.

    Are they delivering to a local HD or to your home? Mine was delivered to my home and for $50.00 the two big fellas that came with the truck helped me get it inside and next to the hearth. Big life saver and worth every penny - they are heavy.

    On the other hand, if you have a plan to get it inside having a few break in fires outside will eliminate some of that stink in the house but it was not to bad from my experience.

    Thanks for the info. and pic Bob.
    "Curbside" delivery. I don't have a curb. ;lol
    I'm hoping for a couple of Hulks or Ahhhnulds to be in the truck.
    I'll gladly slip 'em a $50 to get it at least to the porch. Less than 10' to the hearth from there, through the front door.
    I can get a dolly if needed.

    a dolly would be a good idea, also if you look inside the door accessories and the bricks can all be removed prior to mounting the stove makes it quite a bit lighter to manuver into place. brick layout is in the manual. door just lifts off on its pins.

    Thanks Mike.
    That's the plan.
    I've been through the manual many times.:cool:
    Curious what the height of the stove is.......it's not in the manual. Probably in one of the millions of posts about the 30, but I'd rather not do that search.
    Selkirk doublewall ordered. Should be here by next Wednesday.
    Plenty of kindling on hand for a couple break-in fires.
    Really looking forward to this...........finally.;)

    30.5ish to the top of the heat shield mounted on the back - 29.25ish to the upper deck but I am sure the specs are to the top of the outlet. This is with the legs - there pedestal is shorter I believe and there are short legs available if I am not mistaken. I wanted all the height I could get to make loading easier and I like the look of the legs vs. pedestal personally.

    Note - they are DEEP too and front loading - obviously so in my pic the tile floor was added for ember protection going from a shallow/wide side loader.

    Big clean glass - you will love it!!

    Yeah, my wife kept telling me that as long as the new stove has a window, she'd be happy.
    Didn't care much about anything else.
    I'd say the 30 has that req. covered.
    I plan to put the legs on.
    I should have built the hearth a bit taller, but I was concerned about possible clearance to ceiling issues depending on the stove I got.
    Anyway, we should have a nice view of the fire.
    I may need to add length to the firewood......I'm gonna' need more wood glue.==c
    Most of my splits are 16".

    the 16's will do fine, a little space in front when loading north south is actually a bit better for keeping the glass cleaner anyway

    16' is great with the 30. N/S as Mike says the glass stays cleaner but more importantly less of the flames at the front of the splits goes up and over the baffle losing heat to the great outdoors. Also 16" give great space at the ends of the splits loaded E/W for the gases cooking out of the ends of the splits to burn.

    It is a rule. Stoves are always 1/2" shorter than you need to connect to the pipe. >>

    Which is why I ordered the extra long telescoping doublewall.
    Should be almost 20" extra.
    If I can't make that work, I have worse problems to deal with.:p

    Congratulations! I just bought one myself and finished my second burn today. Watching it burn is just unbelievable to me, I've been burning with a big old 70's stove for the last 20 years and this thing is just so much more fun. It didn't put out the quick heat the old one did, but the burn was so long with the same amount of wood it more than off sets. Normally my shop will be 55 degrees in the morning and I use the quick heat to get things up to speed, but without even trying, in fact not even thinking about trying, the 30 was still putting out heat this morning and it was 60, which is pretty awesome. (it was 32 last night)
    I used High Beams concrete block pedestal, thank you High Beam I love it! I also used HighBeams wheelbarrow concept to put the stove on the pedestal, didn't have two strong men, but one young strong man and an old man and his wife made it happen. Also thanks to all the folks that take their time to teach and explain, y'all have made a mundane chore into an enjoyable event. Thanks!
