So I have my old stove going into the basement since I'm going to be working down there a lot through the winter, maybe even setting up a bedroom down there. Its cement floor and an existing chimney that’s all block, so the only clearance issue is with the floor beam and as per my previous post I'll have to shield that since the thimble is like 9" below the main beam (PO ran it like that since early 90's!). But other than that is there anything else I need to do? I can just set it on the floor, hook up 8" single wall to thimble, and plug the fan in right? Obviously I need to do some cleaning. I have started clearing out all the stuff around the area in the pic (took the pic before that). Its going in place of the wood furnace that’s down there now (I'll have to close the holes in the ducts). ^replacing the red furnace with this (old pic before removing a year ago): Oh and its a masonry chimney, 8x12 flue with a 8" round thimble, and the stove has an 8" collar. I don’t know exactly but the chimney is probably about 30' tall. Anything else I am missing? Just double checking, I have this coming week off, and plan to do the swap then.
