Thanks

strip back the vinyl and move that upstairs window into proper alignment with the lower basement window (everything is easier from that point, may just have to call Verizon to move the Fios box). Run a strait shot of square cinder block with clay flu inside right up as nearest the roof peek as you can (but not moving the elec. service), paint the cinderblock to match the siding. Very low cost, last forever, closer to the roof peak you can get it the better for aesthetics.

It will be on the first floor and i don't think i want to be moving windows around and that case the chimney would probaly be to close to the window right?

The chimney blocks are 18-24" IIRC. I would guess putting it against the face of the porch would give you plenty of room from the window.

consider a direct vent like the harman DVC 500,the additional cost of a DVC would pale in comparison to a brick chimney in that location,on top of the cost of whatever heating unit you are considering to hook into it

Sure, you can build a chimney on that gable end, HOWEVER, you will need a large footing, below frost level just to start. I would say the chimney would be about 38' tall, perhaps more, and it would require proper staging to be safe. That makes the cost hover around 2500 to 4k for a starting point. You may want to rethink the situation, however long term it could be a very good investment. A power vent would drop the cost vastly, so please don't think you HAVE to use any particular stove. You have other options! :idea:

I understand your dilemma, and the trade-off wanting a hand fed stove. No, a power vent cannot be used with a hand fed anything. PM me if you would like my take on this situation.
