I need to run a woodstove pipe through a cathedral ceiling to the outside and have never done this before. So, I'm looking for some advice on particular methods/products.
The stove is in a small cabin with a cathedral ceiling and exposed timber rafters. The pipe will pass through the living space, between the rafters and through the interior sheathing (shiplapped pine), through a 12" cavity of dense-packed cellulose, then through the exterior sheathing (1/2" plywood), and out the metal roof.
Does the pipe need some sort of structural support as it passed through the ceiling (MetalBest has a product thats a double-walled pipe with metal "wings" that screw into joists or blocking)? If so, what products to people recommend (particularly, whats cheap?)?
How can I isolate the pipe from the dense-pack cellulose around it (which hasnt been blown yet)? Some sort of shield?
I am with Jim on this one.
What is cheaper? Spending a few bucks on something to prevent a fire or rebuilding the cabin from the ground up when the old one burns to the ground?
Do it correctly with UL listed materials only.
I have seen many charred pieces of wood where wood stoves were installed as cheaply as possible. They were just lucky.
