I am thinking my next step is to contact the chimney sweep and get it checked out then fill out the mechanical permit form, if the chimney checks out then install the stove. BTW the dealer wanted to charge me about $1900 for the SS liner and labor.
Thank god you found this forum before you made such a serious mistake! listen to what every person here has been saying... Ive had more town inspectors and insurance company's call me requesting assistance, guidelines and setbacks for my fathers stoves, etc. then I can possibly count. It is true that most of the experienced members here are FAR FAR more qualified then most (not to say inspectors are wrong or bad... they do the best they can to protect us regarding a wide variety of things that i would not have clue about)... but in terms of stoves, coal and the flue/chimney's to run them you will not find better qualified folks then here.
the day i line a viable terra cotta flu with stainless is the day you can all put me in the old folks home so they can heat my azz with oil
