Did you even read what I wrote? I didn't tell you to remove your stove at all. I have a stove in one of my garages. But I do so knowing if I ever had a problem insurance most likely won't pay for it. I am fine with that risk in that case. I provided the applicable codes and it looks like you are probably in violation. What you do with that info is up to youI will not be removing the wood stove from my shop based on internet advice. I also will not lose sleep fretting that my shop will burn down.
