    Backup battery needed? I don't want smoke in the house I would only need the power to shut the stove down until I get my generator hooked up
    You think it's worth having ?

    Tile looks good... Make sure you get your cords out of the way and position the hearth to it's final position. Don't want to add more weight and then try to move it around!

    Very nice
    But I want to see the pipe in the house come up the wall about 4 feet and then 90 degrees out of the house.
    Any tips on going thought the wall ?
    Do I insulated around the thimble?

    Do you plan to still use those baseboard heaters? Blocking them like that at the bottom where they draw air by convection can be a fire hazard. The units can over heat. Also dirt and dust can accumulate as well and would be difficult to clean. Personally I would remove them completely, however perhaps disabling them so they can't get turned on would be wise. ie: lock out breaker.

    Yes the baseboard will be used when the stove is not on there will be some room between the baseboard and stove hearth. And those are water filled baseboards I use here in ny
    Was thinking about re looping them but that is a lot more work lol

    They are radiators then, I thought they were electric. In that case you will be fine, perhaps a crevice tool for the vacuum as dirt will get back there.

    If you install the exhaust of the stove straight up then natural draft will help prevent this. Mine goes out the wall then up 6 feet. Also you could get a UPS which would only work if you are home as it would die with the stove still running if you weren't.
