    Yeah, it's kind a funny how I was going to join the Navy and my dad (Navy Vet) told me to join the Coast Guard, those guys have it made, so I followed his advise for 20 years. Then both my kids looked at the Coast Guard and I told them nah, join the Navy those guys have it made and have more opportunities, so they both joined the Navy.

    The Fireview will still be primary and the Keystone will be secondary burning in the colder winter weather but I'm sure that could change and I'm sure I'll have to burn the Keystone more than needed this year just cuz it's new.

    Stoves in, liner installed and insulated with perlite. I still need to clean up the hearth and do something with the crock, but she's ready to go!

    Thanks guys, I'm pretty pleased on how it turned out. Just ordered an 11" od trim collar to hide the gap around the pipe, should be big enough to trim and bend some to fit.

    The wife says no fire yet! :mad:

    As well you should be, Todd.

    You sure know how to get her done Todd. Looks just wonderful just like your other install. Enjoy that extra warmth on those extra cold days and have fun tinkering with it.

    Gotta be the best looking and most effective block off plate in the history of fireplaces.

    Yeah, that whole back wall and some of the sides have perlite insulation between the new brick and old fireplace walls, and then all the way up to the top plate. I figured it would help with the short outside wall chimney.

    The heat is just gonna roll out of that fireplace. In fact you are gonna need to keep an eye on that mantle.

    But what the hey. It is a soapstone cat stove. Low and slow right?

    Why have two of the same, when you can have two slightly different stoves to play with? :) Rock on, Todd! (p.s. That would be a great pic to show the next person who wants to build an exterior fireplace from scratch, instead of a hearth, for the purpose of installing a stove. :) )

    Even though a Fireview would look great in there and would be much easier maintenance wise I still like the looks of the Keystone better. Hey, I can always switch them around if I want. :lol:
