Yes buck24, time flies faster than me.
But I need every inch at the back of the stove and see where to open that roof. The small living room is a small one. Plus, in the States I think you need 16" non combustible space in front of the stove, here, just to bother me, we need 18". So I need to measure and measure...but

Made the first heat shield wit 1/2" air space at the back. For that part of the job it's O.K.
But the next thing I did was to open the ceiling and to see exactly where the chevron was. As you can see on the second photo, the left chevron is at the wrong place. So I will have to offset the chimney to the right and use some 45* to connect to the stove's outlet. Impossible to go inside of that attic so the job is not so easy...

Looking good Nortcan,

I had the chimney guys over to install a liner for my Herald. They were already doing a 7" for the boiler in the basement. The 6" would not fit with the 7". So I had to wait a week and send the 6" back for a 5" which will fit the Herald and hopefull will go down the chimney with the 7" liner. I made quite a mess making a new thimble location too as the other was quite lowat 29" and on the backside of a fireplace and so very narrow also due to the back of the fireplace sticking into the chimney. I had to remove bricks that were part of a wall surround to get at the chimney too! Lets hope they go back easier then they came off!

Well, I busted my butt today and got it all back together. In addition there is a double walled stainless thimble installed now and just waiting for me to plug in my Herald 112! Sheesh my back's killing me though!

SteveZee, now you'r way ahead of me. I offset to the right side to clear the left chevron and got a nice surprise.
Now I realize why I was not in a hurry to start the chimney's job!!!!! Too late to divorce from the Bride now but....

It looks like you are going to end up with a big hole in the roof, oh nooooo! Have you thought about instead of going to one side or the other, to bring the angle back toward the front, away from the wall and the edge of the wall? There should be more room to put in the chimney in that direction

Nortcan,

Always you'll find surprizes! I had my share too, in the form of old beams and rafters. Some I used the sawzall to cut away, but others were structural and could not be touched. That's why I had to use the $60 stainless double wall thimble versus the $5 single wall. But at least I know it's safe and sound. Looks like you are making good headway!

Yep, it does that my friend. You're gaining on it--a little cutting here, a little tucking there--you'll be fine. I think steve-zee's double wall suggestion is right on the money & can't imagine you having thought of going with a single wall thimble--that's not like you?? I had a single wall going through the floor in my log cabin in Vermont with my wood parlor stove--left a couple friends stay there for a week-end--I wonder if I could find the piles of ash & rubble that remained due to their inexperience w/ wood burning & my having that single wall thimble. :( Plus a couple other negative things on my part back in the 70's. :shots: :shots: :beer: :oops2:

I'm so close to the wall so I must make 2 heat shields with air vent. at the back. Maybe when rich I will go for St.St. double wall like SteveZ...
Have a good drink LOL
