    Thanks for the suggestion, seems like a nice stove but we are wanting a stove that has more of a modern look to it. I hope you enjoy your new stove!

    Sounds like a well thought-out decision for a good stove. Keep up posted on the install.

    A couple more things-
    We constructed our own raised hearth pad. Despite the fact that the Spokane only needs ember protection, I'd suggest making a pad/hearth that would accomodate other stoves in the future. It at least keeps your options open for a TON of other great stoves. We raised the R-value using layers of cementboard along with the mortar and tile. Double-check the height needed for this stove compared to your ceiling height in that location.
    We also made a non-combustible wall using the specs from the NFI and stealing ideas from hearth.com. It has a 1-inch space from the wall, mantel, and hearth and is El Dorado brand stone veneer.
    We load our stove N/S but have burned E/W on occasion. The diagonals of the stove can accomodate bigger wood if needed. Get into a stove shop and check out the stove if you can.

    First, congrats to your Brother!

    Thanks for the informative reply. Your idea about replacing the roof Firebrick with insulating bricks sounds like a wonderful idea.

    Did you just order them from your stove shop?

    Would insulating bricks cause any warranty problems or cause the stove to over heat/fire?

    Would you mind checking out my last post on the thread I started regarding my project. Specifically, do the prices sound fair?

    You can find my thread at:

    Thanks in advance.
