    Anyone have a Heritage or similar stove with a side load door in the corner of the room. I'm wondering how far away from the corner the stove has to sit and curious if you went with a corner or square hearth pad?


    Thanks,

    If this is a combustible wall, Hearthstone details out the clearances needed for the stove.

    I have the Heritage. Love that side door. I would think, at minimum you would need about 2' from the wall to be able to load splits without knocking your elbow or wood into the wall. If all you have to work with is a corner, get as much clearance as you can so you don't have to use the front door.
