small wood stove


Yes, it was all dirty. Not as dirty as inside the chimney, but still dirty enough.
And the opening above is square, and it has an orange flue through the whole chimney like this (though this is not my chimney, I just copied from the web):

ok, that would seem to me to be an old fireplace then, as most woodstoves have round pipe to mount up to the flue or out to the wall. looking at that pic again.... what is the 'mailbox' looking thing? it looks like a front porch... shoot a picture looking up the hole. might help too. (and that guy REALLY needs some chimney work done, huh? lol)

Don't pay attention at that thing. It is just a toy. There is a lot of junk around there. Unfortunately, I have no picture where I am now. It is just a square chimney opening in the ceiling with that orange flue inside.

http://www.eurostove.co.uk/WESTFIRE-UNIQ-20_A47CM.aspx something like this might work, it's under 18" wide, soooo..... but it's in the UK too.

You might try a wall tent stove, or a military surplus tent stove.
Other than that, you may have to make one. There used to be kits for barrels years ago, & I have had a few but cant locate them anymore. Maybe try some of the big tool & Part catalogs (McMaster) & such?

Do you think the stove below would be a good thing to install?

Thanks everybody for suggestions.
Somebody gave me Jotul 602, though without legs. As I already mentioned above, I have for it a space on the picture below.


The width of the stove is not much smaller than the width of the opening above. Is it OK to put the stove into the space on the picture, so that the stove would heat the bricks around, and the bricks would radiate the heat into the room? Is it safe for the stove? Is it safe for the bricks?
Thanks in advance.

great price on the stove! i think i'd look for a short leg kit online though, it'd look better. =o)
i see no reason why not to install it there, though an inspector will give you the answers, as a permit should be pulled for this install.

*good luck!*

Thank you for the answer.
Now I have another question concerning installation of the stove. I have chimney flue along the whole length of the brick chimney. Do I need to have a steel liner of the full length of the chimney? Are there any advantages and disadvantages of it?
Thanks.

Did you ever find one? I have an antique stove in Georgia not in use.

As I wrote before, somebody had given me a stove, but I realized that it was missing burn plates. If you have one in Georgia, should I understand that you are giving it away? Is it small enough (because the space is limited)? And how would it get here? It must be very heavy...

Thanks.
