[quote=" I think that location is perfect Are you going to be able to put the stove flue through the fireplace opening and up past the fireplace damper? or are you going to install a 'thimble' through the plaster/drywall above the fireplace mantle?
Either way I think a nice antique cylinder stove will look great in that room.
I think I remember that William plays piano? Maybe you should invite him over for the inaugural 'first match' ?
And have William play some fine old tunes for the occasion?
Take care.. remember, without photos, it never really happened !!
Oh, no need I'm sure for a permit, you have the chimney already. You just need to install it safely, show the installation photos to your insurance agent, I'm sure all will be well.
You did read the very long 'sticky Thread' about minor explosions in hand fed stoves, right? That thread has been a 'Sticky' for many years.. it's full of good advice and techniques. [/quote]
Yes I'll probably just move the piano.. And that location I believe it probably was a stove of some sort there in the early 1900's as the fireplace bricks is not made of firebricks. Why would a fireplace be constructed with out firebrick? Since I now know about these stoves I can totally see one sitting there 80 yrs ago. I am hoping to be able to run the flue through the existing fireplace. But if they have to cut a hole through the dry wall so be it. But I hope it doesn't come to that.
