    Install this U strut over your wire. It comes in many sizes, the one here is 7/8'' deep and usually 10' long. Look for strut without holes in the back.

    The sides are silver, kind of like a stainless kitchen appliance. They are also available in red. Black used to be available but that's no longer available.

    Than you.

    No more plain black sides? I believe the website still offers them.

    I asked blaze king directly. They said they we're having trouble getting the black sides to match the rest of the stove. They are easy to remove so you could always try painting the yourself any color you want.

    Okay, so everything is done finally. I think I'm going to just leave the wire. If it's okay for the wood to be that close it must not get that hot within that space. Also as far as the conduit ideas, one thing I learned when running some wire in my garage is that Romex should not be run inside conduit, which may or may not be code. Reason being that the conduit acts as insulation and the wire could overheat. Conduit should be used with individual conductors. I'm definitely not an electrician but I did stay at a Holiday Inn last night.

    I ended up having to space the wall brackets out from the house by about 1" in order to get 2" away from where the roof shingles overlap the rake board. This pushed the vertical sections further away from the house which meant that replacing the 12" with an 18" section would only push the stove 3 1/2" further into the room which wasn't a big deal. The telescoping section would have been better but I couldn't source it locally and it's $200 as opposed to $100.

    As far as ember protection, I ended up just buying cement board, making an oak trim for around it and tileing over that. It's just a temporary solution and we cracked two of the tiles try to position the stove on top of it. I actually bought a stove board from lowes but returned it because not only was it damaged but it was very low quality to begin with.

    Thanks for everyone's help with this and hopefully this helps someone else who's thinking of doing something similar.

    Also a quick shout out to Alan at Hart's Hearth who was willing to share his considerable knowledge and experience. I didn't buy my stove pipe from them but I should have.

    Now I just need to get the building inspector out to sign off on it and I can start using it. IMG_20180114_093114.jpg IMG_20180114_093253.jpg
