I assume your going to direct vent. I think that stove is or can be direct vented. I would get the manual from the Alaska Stove Company. The clearances to windows are part of NFPA. I think. It looks alittle tight to me. The manual from Alaska is a must.

This link is broken, either the page no longer exists or there is some other issue like a typo.



I had my Keystoker direct vented between 2 windows and had no problems, except a bit of fly ash on the outside sill plates now and then.
just make sure your windows seal up good.

My old install between the windows.

From NFPA 211 November 2002 (not the most current version):

(1) The exit terminal of a mechanical draft system other than a direct vent appliance (sealed combustion system appliance) shall be located in accordance with the following:
a. Not less than 3 ft. (.91 m) above any forced air inlet located within 10 ft. (3 m)
b. Not less than 4 ft. (1.2 m) below, 4 ft. (1.2 m) horizontally from, or 1 ft. (0.3 m) above any door, window, or gravity air inlet into any building
c. Not less than 2 ft. (0.61 m) from an adjacent building and not less than 7 ft. (2.1 m) above grade where located adjacent to public walkways
(2) The exit terminal shall be so arranged that flue gases are not directed so that they jeopardize people, overheat combustible structures, or enter buildings.
(3) Forced draft systems and all portions of induced draft systems under positive pressure during operation shall be designed and installed to be gastight or to prevent leakage of combustion products into a building.
(4) Through-the-wall vents for gas appliances shall not terminate over public walkways or over an area where condensate or vapor could create a nuisance or hazard or could be detrimental to the operation of regulators, relief valves, or other equipment.

These are general guidelines be sure to do what the Alaska installation manual requires.
