Let me start off by saying I have already found some very helpful info on this forum. You guys are awesome. Here is my dilema. I bought a house a couple years ago that was trashed. The nicest thing about the house was an old woodburning stove that had been ditched in the garage. Over the years I have been slowly fixing up everything that has been wrong with the house, and now its time for the wood burner to get a home in the basement. In the basement there is a cutout/ indent to put a gas fireplace in. I have had the six inch stove pipe professionally installed. I have no idea what brand this stove is, ( it looks exactly like a fisher stove but doesn't have any markings that i can see. The stove measures 32" H 37" W 29" Deep) hence i dont know an r value. If I put it in the basement right now it would be on tile over cinderblock over the concrete floor.... no issues there with combustibles. the stove would be six inches from the back wall, tile/cement board/ metal studs/ concrete foundation.... no combustibles behind the stove. The spot that scares me is the stove would be 30" from drywall and wood framing on either side. What suggestions do you guys have, How do I tell what kind of stove this is. The building inspector says just to follow manufacturers guidlines.
