Just when I'm getting the Russo c-55 figured out my wife wants to move it. Okay, I'll just move it... :shock: But I don't want to cut another hole in the ceiling and thru the roof, etc. But I would cut a thru-the-wall flue and put up a Super-Vent pipe....only problem is where she wants stove and where the flue must go, due to construction elements of the house. I will only get a little less than 6" clearance from the wall and ceiling; or in other words the flue must exit the room in a top corner of the room to avoid another roof line from and addition to the house. Want to be safe and sure, but is there any way to deal with this clearance issue safely.? Thanx all.

If I'm following you I don't think that would pass. Most codes I know of require a min.of 18" clearance

Well yes...that is true. I was thinking of making up the clearance with the SS Super-Vent pipe in the house to get away from the corner...that's a 2" clearance pipe, and that is what would be coming thru the wall anyway. If they made a 90 degree that would propably give me the clearance I need until I convert to Super Pipe double wall down to the stove, and be the solution to the problem. I don't know just looking for safe and legal options at this point.

I just went through a clearance issue with my Mark I.
It is my understanding that regardless of local code or manufacturers specs you can reduce clearance to combustibles to the rear (and I believe everywhere else, as well) to no less than 12 inches.

I think the solution to my problem requires a longer extension branch of ss double wall (2" clearance) into the house and another ss Tee (also 2" clearance) with cap inside the house and aimed to stove outlet, since they don't make a 90 degree ss elbow with 2 " clearance. This should give me very ample clearance from wall and ceiling since these fittings are expensive double wall ss metalbestos. Code and safety should be okay. Stove will end up 16" from air gap backing. Maybe the 2 horizontal tees about 18" apart might affect flue draft however...???? In any case, I will reuse the old ss flue which looks essentially new, and cap roof flashing and old ceiling inlet just in case I'm ordered to move the stove back.... ;) Should be safe and code guys happy too...you all think????
