That's not the only problem with a chimney. Years ago my Dad had a word burning stove installed & the chimney professionally built.WB
Did you have to build a chimney for it ? I have a fireplace on the first floor but want to install the wood burner in the basement. Building a chimney is a pain in the back side because of regs and such.
He was out & about one night & came home to a smouldering pile of rubble because the chimney had caught on fire & burned the place to the ground.
