Yeah given what I’ve learned from these posts, maybe we should look into gas if aesthetics are the priority over heat and some gas ones look pretty good.
But won’t that need a 6” flue too?
Nope usually 2 3" liners and they can really put out quite a bit of heat as well

I was wondering if gas was an option. It would simplify the flue concern.

Ok now we’re getting somewhere.
So if the flue will work then gas it is! I knew I came to the right place with this site.

Any recs for a gas insert that might work for that space and flue size?
