- Log burning stove- ideas
Sounds like good reasoning , im having our chimney rebuilt in the spring as the coping slabs are a bit loose and the renders cracking so investigation and remedy are taking place.
Liners not terribly expensive compared to that so will probably get one dropped in at that point.Posted 4 years agosoobaliasMember
mr chimney sweep came round.
it turns out what ive got is a multi fuel burner on a slightly dodgy installation, the burner is set right back against the wall, the flue goes past a steel baffle with no access panel and into the existing chimney
Sweep removed the flue and cleaned the chimney, he considers the chimney in good condition, so give it a good burn and see what happens.
rough quote for a liner is £1k.Posted 4 years agoourmaninthenorthSubscriber
Has anyone got a wood burner in a new build that doesn’t have a chimney?
Yep. Firebelly (made in Yorkshire, no less). Twin wall looks a bit industrial in our sitting room. Needed to have a bend in the flue to exit it near the apex of the roof.
I’ll do some pics some time.
Lit it this evening for the second time this autumn. Toasty!Posted 4 years agoDickyboyMember
these guys are moving premises at the end of the year & should have some bargain stoves available from their old showroom in the run up to xmas 🙂Posted 4 years agosharkbaitMember
but £600 of that was for scaffolding
Scaffolding? Do you live in a normal house or a castle? My guy just used ladders. Happy to give you his number Teeto as he’s very good and fairly close (Tarporley) – BUT I think he now only fits Clearview stoves as he’s fed up with the hassle associated with other makes (apparently).Posted 4 years agorichcMember

They are supposed to use scaffolding although some people will just use a rope around the chimney
Not sure who is liable if they fall off and cripple themselves.
Is that a slate roof? If so you don’t want anyone walking on it unless they know what they are doing as slates break very easily.Posted 4 years agobedmakerSubscriber
Not heplful to the OP but here’s a gratuitous pic from yesterday afternoon.
Owner – We’ve been told the stove you put in for us is dangerous. The flue pipe is 40mm from wooden beam but should be at least 450mm. We’d like the beam replaced with slate please.
Plumber – I’m not a builder, that’s not my department.
Owner – But you put it there!
Plumber – Nothing to do with me.
Owner – Errr, OK.
Still, what’s the worst that could happen eh?Posted 4 years agosharkbaitMember
That’s a ‘small’ flue for an 11kw stove. It doesn’t mention adjustable door hinges (important to help keep door sealed – especially as the door looks like its steel and could warp) or feet. I like the steel body construction but there will be a reason why they’re so cheap.Posted 4 years agofuton river crossingMember
My living/dining room is 8×4.5m and is open to a pitched roof ceiling, so I think I’ll need a big one! I have a hearth with a large cast iron gas fire with a balanced flue, the existing flue comes out of the rear of the fire, through the wall. It would be nice to use this existing opening, alternatively I can take the flue straight up through the roof, as there isn’t an existing chimney. The gas fire is too expensive to run as we’re on LPG.Posted 4 years ago
