small wood stove
 
I am looking for a small wood burning stove. The space I can use for it is only 20" wide and about 15" deep.
Could anybody help me find something that might fit?
Thanks in advance.

hope this helps...

Thanks. It seems to be a good stove, but its depth (19.5") will not fit my situation. Maximum depth can be only 17".

By the time you figure the required clearances to combustables, you will have a Barbie size stove. Have you checked on the clearances in your jurisdiction?

I am sorry, I am not sure I understand what this means. Could you please clarify it for me?

Thanks.

call your inspectors at your permit office and ask them what the rules are for your particular problem. be honest with them and they should be able to answer you. fireplaces and woodstoves are 'dangerous' when not installed/used correctly and we'd hate to lose you!
(i think fireguy typo'd, he meant to say CLEARANCES)
our woodstove is surrounded with brick walls.

Yes I did mean "clearances". Stupid computer, it should know what I meant. you also need to be aware of hte clearances to the smoke pipe and other code requirements.

Thank you, MdangermouseM and fireguy.

The place where I want to put the stove is designed for this purpose. It is a brick shelf between brick walls, and the chimney is right above it. Do I still need to talk to the inspectors? Also, I still don't know if I will be able to find that small stove.

do you think there was already one there before? if so maybe it was a custom job? a photo of that area would help.

Yes, it had soot on the walls. Here is the picture.

DangerMouse 09-02-2008 07:24 PM

what is up in the hole at the top? round? perhaps it was one of those old round woodstove's i see around here alot? or maybe someone made one from a burning barrell? hmmmmm....

ok, was the soot all over the walls shown inside the opening? like it was 'the inside of a chimney' dirty? if so, i believe there was a fireplace insert in there, and that was the chimney opening. someone took out brick to make it a broom closet maybe? did you paint it white in there?

It looks as if your clearamces to combustables problem is solved. Don't forget the clearance to combustables when you open the front door. Now you can work on your smoke pipe clearance problem..

Yes, I did paint it white. There is a real fireplace in the living room behind the brick wall you see on the picture. And there is a square chimney above the place you see on the picture. The fireplace behind the wall has its own separate chimney.

Bit I still don't know where I can take a stove small enough to fit into this space.

square opening or round?
