Re: wood stove install

Probably best to check the requirements/regulations with your homeowners insurance.

I just put one in the corner of my family room. I went by the specs that came with the stove.

Re: wood stove install

Have you decided on a stove?

My Opinion- Go BIGGER. I have a stove rated for 1000 sq ft, and my house is 876 sq ft. I wish I had bought a bigger stove.

Do you have a source of wood? I bought a trailer for this car, chainsaw, splitter,etc. Last year I did not turn on the furnace, but it was a lot of work..


If its a new stove, it will come with specs for clearances. If it's an older stove, google up the owners manual. Also, a forum that helped me is hearth.com. Lot's of good info over there.

Edit: Fordman maentioned homeowners insurance. Get a permit if required by your town, and for me, my original HO ins. co was not very receptive. I switched everything over to another company, HO ins went up $45 a year..

Re: wood stove install

Re: wood stove install

Wonderboard will protect the walls. That and staying within the recommended clearances.

Re: wood stove install

I did mine 4' high x 4' wide on two walls and made a nice base out of field stone that I picked. It works and looks good.

Re: wood stove install

Cement or backerboard, than use cutlered stone to finish it off. Its easy to do and will look great
