    I have a question.....
    I am in the process of constructing a hearth pad for our Jotul Castine. The gentleman who is doing the installation requested
    that I make the pad big enough to account for 12" of clearance from the wall to the rear of the stove. He made this request so that he would have room to accomadate the 90' elbow that will connect to a thimble/sleeve in the wall. Seems like a good idea....
    So to make the hearth the correct size I need to know the depth dimension of the stove and I need to account for 16" in the front of the stove too. The Manual I downloaded from Jotul say's that this dimension is 23 1/4. Does anyone know if this dimension includes the "rear heat shield"? The manual really isn't claer about this. Unless I am missing it?? This is sort of important
    because our house is small and I would like to make the hearth as small as I possibley can, without sacrificing safety and code of course....!
    Does anyone know if the rear heat shield adds to the depth dimension?????

    Thanks! Thanks! Thankyou!

    That dimension shoundt include the heatshield, but the heatshield doent factor any way, with the heat shield you have x amount of clearance to the wall, pipe, corners, etc etc, you never pull the dimension from the heatshield.

    Thanks Ryan
    So when you say "X amount of clearance" do you mean that with the heat shield I can set the stove 12 inches from the wall, then just attach the heat shield and still maintain clearance? Which is 7 inches with a heat shield.

    it adds i littke more then a inch if i remember correctly, and yes, you pull the tape from the same place as you would without a heatshield. For example, my hearatige has a 7 inch clearance from the rear of the top frame, with a heatshield installed.
