I’m hoping to try and install a baby bear In our living room,( have a lead on one) but curious on the clearances and the possibility of making it work. The fireplace opening is 26”W by about 31”H, and 11” D and the measurements of the overall masonry part is 60” W by 63” H. With the Baby bear’s width, looks like it would be about 22-24” to the edge of the drywall on the right side and about the same to the edge of the wood on the left. Looking at the manual for both the non UL listed and UL listed stove, it’s shows the back wall and corner clearance of 36” for the older model and a back wall clearance of 30” and 32” for corner clearance on the listed stove. My question is which clearance # would I need to apply here, and would it be possible to use heat shields or other methods to make the installation work, thanks!
