My building authority wanted it installed to the manufacturers spec's, but they didn't really inspect it. They just wanted me to pay for a building permit and inspect it so they could raise my taxes. The inspector knew jack s*!t about wood burning appliances. They just wanted the $$$$$.

Don't know for sure yet, but it I believe it "increased the value of our home" so I'm expecting an increase. I can say with complete certainty that the safety of the install was never a factor with the inspector cause he had no clue what he was looking at. I showed him receipts, pics of the install, and the finished product and he was satisfied. I didn't have my tile hearth extension completed, but the tile was laid and that was enough to please him. In the end, the permit was a complete waste and I should have never bothered. Every installer I talked to looked at me like I had a D*$! growing out of my forehead when I asked them about pulling a permit. Now I know why.Chrism said:Your taxes go up cause of a wood stove are you kiddin me
Just make sure your insurance company is aware of the install. I've heard some insurance companies want to inspect the install. Mine didn't.Chrism said:Yeah I pay the town enough taxes I'm gonna install it the correct way and no need for them to know !!
State Farm as well, but no premium change with inspected install... Pleasant surprise on this end.PopCrackleSnap said:No zoning in the township in which I live, but I did contact my State Farm agent, and she came out and took photos of my installation.

If you are talking about it not being the business of the Township, that's up to you.Chrism said:Jeff were in same boat I pay the insurance on MY house I pay the bills on MY house! None of their biz what I do with MY house.
