    I'm looking for some advise. We have a modular home that was built in 1975 so we are unsure if there is any extra supporting that we will need to use on the flooring. We are looking to purchase the Englander 10-cpm when it arrives in the stores. We have 2X6 construction. Please let me know any advise you may have before we don't do anything or not enough. I'm pretty sure my husband wants to add more support but he asked me to check it out.

    ^^ It was a play on words. More support here means you need to help him do the job. It was a joke.

    It can't hurt to add more structural support underneath anything heavy in a home where you're not sure of the load bearing capacity. I'd say the first question to answer woul dbe how heavy is the stove you're installing?
