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
