Where wood you put the wood stove?
« on: October 28, 2020, 08:17:23 PM »
I know it can go almost anywhere with enough chimney pipe, but don't want to run chimney bracing if not really needed.

I'm thinking in the SE corner below the steps. It's about 8' from the south wall. Maybe run the pipe into the main shop and up and out?

The garage door will be put in once we build the house. I'll frame that in and maybe add a window. We'll prolly be in the shop for 3 years or so. Me bride wants to build the first part of our apartment building first.

Yeah, that too. It'd be straight across from the entrance door on the south west corner if I put it where I mentioned

lj, did you not see the stairs? Im not trying to be a smartelec but those probably lead to it/them. Just an educated guess from my MANY years ago (10th grade) drafting class that I BARELY (61%) passed. BTW, I was horribly slow and inept. Looking back I should have taken wood shop or a auto shop.

ours is in the living are as we like to watch the fire and feel the heat.  we use a tote with handle on one end and wheels on the other to keep bark and dirt off the floor.  in the winter and we are keeping it going 24/7,  the heat goes up the open stairway.  so we keep bedroom doors closed or it will be too warm to sleep.  hate to have my wife opening a window after working so hard to heat the rest of the house.  so not a precise location, but some general considerations.  also not just inside the door, so when a family with 3 kids walk in, you are not up against a hot wood stove.

Im not sure Id want the stove at the bottom of the stairs. If you ever had a large piece of furniture to carry upstairs ( couch, mattress, etc) you would probably have to move the stove. Also a high traffic area so that increases the risk of someone tripping and falling against the stove.

The place for a wood stove is where almost no one would put one, in the middle of the room/structure with the pipe going straight up through the ridge where there is almost no water except the rain. This can possibly give you  a self cleaning chimney.

Looks like he can just roll up the overhead door and deliver the wood by front loader.

You'll need to study up on flue installation before the answer can be found. Learn where you can use stovepipe vs. flue pipe. Also learn how much height is required to achieve a proper draft based on where and how the flue exits the building.
I dislike through the wall flues vs. through the roof but much that enters into that one.  Most of the websites of the mfg. of stovepipes and flues have reference pages.  That's only possible if you know the exact stove you'll be using and also know codes that might pertain as well?
In my great room addition to our home I went with a small Jotul stove that has glass doors as it's mostly a recreational fire not what provides our overall heating as once was the case-for over 25 years, as it were.
Many people nowdays choose stoves that are not situated within there home. I didn't have that option when I built my home to buy a pre-made outdoor furnace/boiler setup. Mostly they weren't invented yet and I couldn't afford a wood boiler as was made back then. The Mennonites I bought my Riteway wood furnace from in 1978 actually had such an arrangement which heated their home and an adjacent greenhouse operation.
If you must have a fire indoors then do the first part of my response. My flue in our new timber frame great room is triple wall SS pipe which exits the cathedral ceiling directly above the stove. As far as I know, in the USA double wall is mostly the code for metal flues whereas in Canada the codes are far more stringent! I like to opt on the side of caution when it comes to flues for solid fuels!!!
Another consideration safety wise is that given the upstairs sleeping, you need a fire exit in your design!
Does local code there, if any require a catalytic stove? Best to talk whomever will insure the building before you do anything at all towards a solid fuel appliance!
Where I live, other than your insurance company your free to burn the place down as fast as you can and I see flues as I drive down the road that make me wince!!! ::) Many are the very commonly seen trailer homes of my poverty area or old common houses with what was a haphazardly built masonry fireplace from long ago fitted with a stove pipe. Sadly this kills many each year so a serious soap box subject for me. 
I pity the poor bastard who decides to remove my wood furnace from the basement! I placed it on my slab before the foundation walls were laid. I slid our firewood down a wooden chute to my sons who stacked it under our back porch, 3 and 1/2 rows to the ceiling and carted into the basement from the stacks. Anything under 6-7" went into the stack unsplit for long burns. 
I love a wood fire but don't envy chasing that much firewood ever again.

@kantuckid Thanks. Not worried about code, but I will put in a triple wall stainless pipe. best to go straight up I know, but then I'd prolly need 12' of pipe out side, not going to do that. asking for what wil work vs what is best

FB marketplace has lots of used stovepipe for sale. My cabin build is waiting on the beginning of wood parts now but I buy stuff when cheap. This week I got 3x 36" pieces of used Metalbestos 6" pipe and a storm cap for less than half price. 
I'm currently watching for a deal on the roof parts for my flue system. Two solid days of rain here so the web is a friend right now :D
Wood fires are one place where code matters even though it's not there. The insurance folks are quite another thing... 
High roof lines mean lots of "something" to get away from ridgelines and down drafts. My log home is two story and like already said, the heat will go up no matter what and a fan is a waste. 
Sleeping upstairs you might want that heat as far as you can get (well, sort of) it from where you sleep or you'll burn up?  Our entire home has cathedral ceilings with ceiling fans that work year round to circulate air.

@kantuckid I meant by code that I won't need to have it inspected. It'll be built to better than code if possible, as that's how i typically build stuff

I did some research after you all posted and I found a rule called the 3 - 2 - 10. 

I attached 2 pics. Based on that I should be able to put it right where I have put the X if that rule holds true. That puts it just below 5' tall on the high side of the roof.

I cannot read the elevations such as wall heights as my zoom doesn't get me there. The top of a flue, as I recall, (my minds getting a tad oldish) should be x # feet higher than any roof surface within 10' , something like that. What type of ceilings or roof does it penetrate? In my cabin build the flue will use whats called a "roof support" such as cathedral ceilings and "A"-frames use. Single wall stove pipe meets that sheet metal box then mates with multi-wall pipes, through the proper boot for the roofing and pitch, etc., then on up to where it will both draw and not backdraft either. Also a brace setup and a cap. 
As a guy that has burned a whole bunch of wood I can say that the best of them will come back at you on days when the barometer is playing jokes on yer flue. 
Is in the garage 1st, then modify the flue and move it later a thought worth having? 
Have you considered the outside burners I mentioned?  Never seen this but I suppose some people might have a "sit and see it fire" along with an outside thingy.

Things is the single wall is fairly inexpensive to reach that ceiling as only when you contact a pass through area and into outside air does it go to triple wall. 
FWIW, my Jotul stove we love it. I'd never choose it to heat anything other than a very small place though! I painted my inside stove pipes with rattle can green heat paint to match the stove. It sits in a corner on ceramic tile which meets the self made wide board oak floor. i trimmed out my tile with oak thin strips which have a 1/4" walnut strip between. The tile continues to a double French door entryway and woods a few feet away on the deck. 
Our fireplace is masonry into a 12" SQ tile flue and our wood furnace (not used as we virtually never lose electric power here, but when we have we burn the Jotul FT) is in the basement into the 8" SQ tile and up two stories to a natural stone chimney top.  We only use the fireplace for holidays. I paid a mason what amounted to nearly what my lumber cost to build my home to do the fireplace and basement walls too. Which by most peoples standards was a pittance. 
Have fun doing this big thing! Man, do I ever love to build. It should have been my final of my 5 careers but I wasn't that lucky I guess.

3' above the highest point within 10' or 2' above the ridge is code, but, that looks like a recipe for a downdraft. Wind rolling off the upper roofs is likely going to shove the smoke back down that pipe.

Just to stir the pot, outdoor wood boilers have yet to approach the dim flicker of stone age technology.

Maybe not much wind in Oklahoma? :D 
Dim flicker of stone age tech-that's a good one! 
On that same notion, in the woods I sometimes think about the original people and what they had to burn, such as lightning hits and so forth.
 Tech wise my recent used stove buy for my cabin build has a catalytic converter in it and represents my first stove with one of those honeycomb thingies. Hard to imagine all that "stuff" going through those little honeycomb holes of about 3/16"SQ?
 I bought the Vermont Castings stove as a basket case and FWIOW, I came real close to leaving it out when I re-assembled the stove.
