Sooo...here is the finished heat shield. It only took 5 years and a couple of months. DK and I decided that we didn't really care for the extreme shine of the "naked" tile so I painted it. I used a Bright Stove metallic paint - russet - so it still has some gloss but not nearly as much. The shine is what is giving the dappled appearance across the shield. The russet sort of ties in with the bricks on the hearth and seems to fit the room. The nice thing about using the tile is if I get tired of it, I can always repaint it. Lisa

Looking at your picture and the fact you made no mention of a heat shield behind the stove, I'm concerned that you may be short on the distance to combustibles requirements. That area behind the stove is going to heat up, dry out and become a fire hazard quickly if you don't put in a heat shield of some sort. Take a look at the pictures on this link, they all have a heat shield of non-combustibles to prevent that. If you've already planned for one, great but if not think about adding one to the area behind your stove. They are pretty simple and inexpensive to make; concrete sheets and some 2 inch nipples and lag bolts will do the job. Take care, Lisa

You need to do better than that, you need to keep the heat off the wall. From those numbers I would say your not to code but close. Put a sheet of tin one inch away from the wall. I would have it inspected as well, unless your house insurance is of no concern..

Joe, you need to look at the spec plate on the stove which should have it's required clearances from the side, back, etc. Drywall, even two layers, provides no heat protection to the framing behind it. The heat transfers right through. As wood is repeatedly heated it's point of combustion gets lower and lower. Most radiant stoves require 30" of clearance to anything combustibile. A properly installed heat shield will reduce it to 15".

Really enjoy looking at everyone's stoves on this thread. After some amount of work I finally can post a picture of my Hitzer 983 insert. I found it on Craigslist for a fair price and a 250 mile drive to the hinterlands of upstate NY. Didn't look too pretty then, but was in good working condition - not much to break on these stoves... I bought new trim pieces and rope gaskets from Hitzer (nice folks) and a couple of cans of Honey Glow Brown Stove Bright paint and went to work. Installed the stove the day of the New England Nor'easter and couldn't be more impressed. Still needed to get the surround (trim) put on and finally did that a few days back and here it is!

Rob - You're right. He loves being in front of the stove. Here's a picture of him last year in front of my old Surdiac 513 (my first adventure in coal burning). Not nearly as attractive of an installation as the Hitzer, but functional and warm nonetheless. And yes, that is a plastic hangar in my dog's mouth. To him - if it fits in his mouth, it's a toy :lol:

My Coalbrookdale Darby. First season using it, we love not just how much heat it puts out but the quality of the heat. 67 degrees in the next room over feels much warmer than with the oil boiler baseboard heat we're used to.

Very nice installation, I like the look of your stove. How old is it? Sometimes someone ask on the forum: what would be the "perfect" stove. I think that a model like your's would be a good starting point.
