    Did it myself,easy and quick.Out the wall straight and used the outside air kit so I could get closer to the window.

    Looks Super, Stove and Pad....

    My install is exactly like yours except for the cap outside.

    Make sure to keep all those leaves away from underneath your exhaust !!!

    Beautiful install! Thanks for sharing. So, with a cold air kit you don't need to be 4' from a window?

    I really like your stove install, but am disappointed as I read your thread title as "XXX install pics". j/k

    Looks great! Keep an eye out that your vent termination pipe has plenty of
    room this winter when the snow gets too deep.
    Looks like our little "XXV" family is growing fast around here lately.

    Thanks all,
    I will try and get some nice looking ladies in thongs and do that XXX install pics ;-)

    With the outside air kit you can be 18" from window,much easier.Whole kit and pipe was less then $250.00,my labor as always free (not counting the beer).

    I have a 350 foot driveway in front and then a back one to the lower garage's and firewood so my Kubota 24 Hp diesel tractor with 50" snowblower is a necessity.Makes it much more fun to keep the area around the house clear.We probably got more then 10 ft as that was the total in Concord I am north of there by the ski area.

    Thanks,
    I noticed I did the double tap (I was on the laptop) but could not figure out how to remove the extra one.

    Thanks for the compliments,
    it really is very easy,can't understand why one would pay 400 or more to have it done.Hardest part is getting it off truck.
    Dustape, Hi neighbor ! I am over by Sunapee where are you hiding out?

    Question for you XXV guys,what are you using for battery backup? I started to read the thread with the different waves and got lost?
    thanks
