Default The Stovepipe and the Stud

So my brother and I are going to be installing the stovepipe soon. I have the snow kit for the Pacific Yurt, which means studs on the walls. I am curious if it is ok to permanently remove one stud when putting in the stove pipe. Here is their diagram of how to install the flashing, but they show it on a standard yurt. I added the black vertical lines to illustrate where the studs are currently:

I am thinking the stud will be too close to the pipe even if it is Metalbestos. I am going to ping the PY rep and see what he has to say. Anyone else deal with this before?

Yes. You could even remove multiple studs, but the more studs you remove, the less effective the kit. Try to keep it as equally distributed as possible. One stud left out should make a truly minimal difference.

I'd be far more concerned about that wood being too close, as you say.

Hi Jafo,

The rafter support in question can be removed, but I would use it to frame across horizontally between the neighboring rafter supports. (Higher on the wall is better than low because it will help the yurt to resist torque.) However, you do not need to remove the rafter support. You can simply move your stove pipe over the left a little so that you maintain a 2" clearance from the pipe to the rafter support. The stove flashing will not be centered in the "diamond" area of the lattice wall, but will function exactly the same.

The rafter support placement for yurts with our "standard" wall height (yours is the "tall wall") ends up being about 5" over from where yours are, so this would never be an issue.

Ok, great, thanks! Hopefully will be getting this done in a couple weeks. Starting to get cold here!

I removed one rafter and placed the stovepipe right in the middle of the diamond. The lattice also gets toasty hot too so I would tend to put it as they recommend. The tricky part was cutting the hole in the --hhmm cant think of what its called-- what the stovepipe goes through. If you cut the hole too big then you have a drafty area that is not easy to seal.
I can take a pic of how I have it set up but cant do that for a few days.
I also have "real windows" in my yurt and the wood stove sits between them so when its snowing outside I can sit and feels the warmth of the fire and see the mountains out the window. My stove sits atleast 2' away from the wall of the yurt with a cement board against the walls.
Good luck

Hey Corinarose,

Any advice for cutting the circle for the stove pipe through the metal flashing?

Thanks,
Peter
