    I have searched and searched for a manual for this wood stove/ fire box. I am installing with through the ceiling dual wall pipe that I know is to code but id like to know how close to a sheet rock wall this can sit. I would love to have OEM install instructions but would settle for advice.

    Check out this page:

    http://www.hearth.com/econtent/index.php/articles/stove_wall_clear

    It tells you general clearances to combustibles. Many older stoves do not have a tag on stove stating how close to combustibles you can have it, if this is your case you would have to go by these clearances. If you scroll down a bit on the page, it will show you that it is possible to reduce your clearances up to 66%.

    If you keep it 36" from combustibles, you will be safe.

    I have owned the home for 10 year now with the stove having been installed before I purchased. the woodstove is a firebox style stove and was only 12 inches from the original wall. Have I been risking our lives all these years???? I was asking about clearances because I wanted to turn the wood stove corner style, in order to meet the clearances recommended in this article I would have to eliminate the stove all together, I guess I have a lot to consider as this is our primary heat source.
