    I have a single story bungalow ranch with vaulted ceilings in every room-the highest part of the house is 11 ft- I am putting the stove where it will exit at about 8 feet in the living room. I bought the ss supervent ceiling kit. Do i need a special adapter to compensate for the ceiling?

    Thanks,

    Bob

    be carefull. you cant miss match parts. You will need to get all the same brand for it to lock and work together.

    Supervent is manufactured by Selkirk Canada and I believe can only be found at Lowe's in the lower 48. They do offer a cathedral ceiling support but it might have to be ordered.

    yes metal, lowes will have to order it..

    I went to www.unclejoes.com and they have a complete kit for vaulted ceiling for $229.

    MSG, If selkirk makes supervent, the double wall stainless from lowes should fit, right?..
    If not, 'll take that back too..

    The Supervent Cathedral Ceiling Kit at Lowe's (special ordered) was $120.00 last fall. I would check with Lowe's first.
