    Rigid is much heavier gauge pipe. It can take a licking and still be ticking. You still may need to transition to flex at the damper . The hearth requirements vary with the stove. Some are ember protection only and others need substantial hearth insulation.

    If you're installing the appliance upstairs, and accessing this existing chimney is a bother (which it will be), is it possible for you to just go straight up & out through the house with an all new metal flue/chimney?

    (If I've mis-read what your intentions are for the appliance installation, please disregard and forgive me.)

    Your questions about the floor and the walls...the answer is a resounding YES...these will have to be addressed to ensure a safe installation.

    There is also an attic above the room here. Plus I would then have another pipe in the attic and another hole in the roof. I like the idea of using the chimney for a cleaner install because it's already there. Plus it's in the middle of the house and I think this would be the best place for the install.

    Ceramic tile on the floor is not sufficient? What would have to be put on the walls and ceiling?

    That all depends on the stove. Clearance and hearth requirements are specified in the manufacturer's installation instructions.
