Hi, just sharing my new alcove stove installation.

I want to thank everyone who contributes here.

I've lurked for years and gleaned quite a bit of information that helped me with planning and implementation.

We're really enjoying wood heat again. We used to have a wood stove years ago when we lived in Oregon, but that's was in the '90s.

Pre - old propane zero vent stove we ripped out.​
Post - new Jotul stove. Wall behind stove has 1" air gap for reduced clearances.​

Very nice install! How’s you F45 working out?
We are only a couple days into using it, but very happy with the stove so far. We have both heat pumps set very low and neither have kicked on since we completed the curing fires. We're coming into slightly colder weather so a bit more of a test soon. I've had plenty of coals in the morning to restart the fire. Stove was about 200 stove top temp when I got up about 6:30 this morning.
