Couldn't tell you how many times I've seen that. Usually the horizontal pipe is at least five feet long. The funny part is... 9 out of 10 times It's supported by the window unit (air conditioner) on top of a 55gal drum. Don't want to carry it to far away :P

Pretty sad Dougie boy, I have a neighbor who showed me his rocket stove :lol: a 5 gal bucket with 4 inch pipe surrounded with sand and he said he was going to pull out a window sash and do the same thing with his chimney, and I just shook his hand and said "hope to see yah come spring!

Desperate people do desperate things!

I don't think it's gas.... it looks sooty.


PS.... I've done the same thing in the past, but used sheet metal to cover the window hole, not plywood.

Probably a wood stove right on the other side of that window (that used to be there).. I had a set up like that for my garage with a 55 gallon drum barrel stove. Worked great to warm up the garage for band practice. Burned wood and garbage in it ... Oh that's right, they ain't smuch different.. :lol:

ya... im not sure what they are burning on the other end of that pipe, but i think its wood (just a guess).... its a recent install though (or at least re-install) because i drive by it every day... that photo is taken from inside my truck on the street (building inspector's always worries about hurricane clips & nail block plates... yet this is somehow dandy :cry: )

That's how my neighbor vented his pellet stove through a 6-over-6 window. He replaced a pane with sheet metal and ran the exhaust pipe out. Left the rest of the window intact so he would still get light.

Looks like he's got a lil bit of land there. Also looks like he did it safely & I'd bet that height works for whatever he's got in there. Ya know, joinin NEPA X-roads don't make us EXPERTS on everything pertaining to running a stove. I also know it's real easy to be critical-- Damn, time for barn chores :)

Maybe his central heating system failed and he couldn't afford to replace it and he's making due with what he has. There really is always more to a story. ;)
