A bit late to the party but this is how our wood stoves are installed. What is not visible is cement board with a hole cut through it for the double walled pipe. It's probably a belt and braces approach but the installers should know what they are doing. No angles though. All stoves I've ever seen in Mongolia are direct vertical chimneys.

For a party definitely goes better late then never U.K.
Nice stove setup. Clean. I like your Yurt too! The side window is very nice, in Mongolia right?

Well after a couple of months I can give you some experience in Portugal. Let me first show you my setup

So yeah easy seyup, works like a charm. Draw is very good

But hey, how impressed am I by the felt

insulation

. Incredible the way it holds warmth.
We almost never have the stove running during the day, once the sun is up

Looks great. I really like the look of your stove. I'm just guessing (haha) that Portugal is a bit warmer than Mongolia in winter. We had a cold December but warmer than usual January.

We can also turn off the the heat when the sun comes up but as soon as the sun drops, the temperature plummets. We have been running a combination of

heating

approaches. The wood stove is my favourite for ease of use and fast heat with wood. For a longer burn we mix in semi-coke briquettes.

This is supplemented by a solid fuel boiler and radiators. This is a bit of a pain because it's a dumb boiler (nothing automated) and the boiler is outside in a shipping container. This is more of a backup and isn't enough on its own for the coldest nights.

Then we have the electric heated floors which is nice but lacks ambience.

All the above applies only to our modern gers - the ones with windows but we also have 2 traditional Mongolian gers. They only have basic stoves. Last weekend we had paying guests for 2 nights. They said they were toasty as long as they kept the fire going. They also use a mix of wood for fast heat and semi-coke briquettes for a long burn. We had tested it the night before they arrived by spending the night in there. It has double layers of felt and no windows. So it's quite well insulated. Whereas we get a lot of heat loss with big glass doors and one or two windows in the modern gers.

Nice looking stove. I would want a bit more of a hearth though for sparks/embers. I made mine about 20% larger than code required and haven't regretted it. Sometimes you have no idea what will fall out when you open the door lol.

Jafo made a good comment about fireplace and woodstove hearth size.

Imo a non combustible hearth needs to extend at least two feet out from the front of the fireplace that's at floor level. With a front load woodstove and elevated firebox, 3'-4' is better yet. Nothing gets your full attention like burning logs tumbling out of the fireplace.
