Hi all, new to the forum and looking for some advice on adding a chimney. I dabble in contruction some and have family who have built their homes after the framing was done, so I am not too worried about the contruction of the chimney, but I want to be sure I am to code. I recently purchased a Century Hearth FW300011 from Menards and I plan to install it in the finished basement. The stove pipe/chimney will come up out of the stove, 90 into the finished wall, 90 straight up along the side of the house, through the eave and out the roof. Most of it seems straight forward once I know what needs to be done. For the questions/notes: 1. The hearth will be a 5x5 slate tile on concrete. 2. The finished wall is a piece of drywall on a stud with cinder block behind it. Do I need a thimble for going through this wall? The studs are 24" apart, do i need to center the chimney in this space or to I need to attach to one of the studs? 3. I have a 2' eave which the chimney will need to go through. what is used for making it through the eave? 4. I have a 5/12 pitch on the roof line. I think I need just over 4' of chimney after clearing the roof for code. Manual states 15' min height on the chimney which I will clear no problem. 5. What kind of pipe for each section and is there a good place to get it online? Or should I just go back to menards to get that stuff? 6. Stove will be 15-18" from the back wall and have over 25" of hearth in front of the stove. 7. I noticed some thimbles are about 12"x12". I was expecting just to take out 1 block which is 8x12. do I have any other options? 8. How do I remove the block and do I need to fill the cavity between the drywall and block next to the pipe? 9. Was not planning on adding a chase right now. Maybe in the spring. sorry for the long post. I was planning on asking a few local contractors but none are returning phone calls for come reason. I also added some pictures of the install location. Thanks! Any help would be great! I would love to get the floor down this week but the chimney placement can make it shift a few inches either way and I would like it to be centered.
