    Clearances are 36" to combustibles. What is behind the brick on the walls?

    Sorry thats was a pic of the stove im picking up...i wish i had a brick wall..this ia what i have now.. Behind that paneling is a square chimney. Can not find a clean out so im gueasing its behind the paneling. House is on a slab so im gonna cut the carpet between the blue lines and lay ceramic tile and build a heat shield on the wall. Alot of work and its getting cold

    Coming out the roof its the big square chimney block with red clay flue liners. Just bought this house. And never seen a chimney built like this.. Any insight on this. Is this chimney for wood or gas???.
    Also waiting on a guy to inspect and clean it

    That sounds like a pretty standard chimney to me. You can reduce the clearances to 12" with a proper ventilated heat sheild. But you also need to deal with the wall passthrough you need 12" of solid masonry going through the wall. You also need clearance from the outside of the masonry chimney.

    Im going by what existing from the 70's.
    Everything looks good looking in to the chimney from the opening but still want to get it inspected. My biggest concern was the clearence and heat shield.
    Do you think there is a cleanout somewhere or did the not install them on some

    No it does not look good the paneling is way to close to the pipe going through the wall. And there are plenty of chimneys with no cleanout.

    Either cut it back and put in 12" of solid masonry on all sides of the crock or get an insulated wall passthrough

    Yes that is actually the one we use. It is the easiest one we have found to install.

    No it screws fast to the chimney. You need to cut back all of the flammables.

    Should be easy enough for a weekend project. Now for the heat shield. I have seen many diffrent ways other people has done theirs. Any insight of the way you would do it on the panel wall. I no i would love to tear the panel down and brick it but aint no telling all i would get it to doing that

    Any non combustible material spaced off the wall with noncombustible spacers. And a 1" gap top and bottom to allow for airflow.
