Default Chimney

Looks good! How will you anchor the chimney to the metal post?

I will be using the unistrut pictured in this post. We will be doing that today, and most likely staying at the yurt for the night, but I will try to post the images up tomorrow. I google'd unistrut looking for images, and this diagram kind of gives you an idea of how it mounts to the post:

Ok, here are some of those unistruts all cut up and being installed:

Here are some more shots of the chimney. We still had the post stabilized with some rope, but that was only temporary. The concrete had only sat up for one day at this point:

Notice how we slid the metal flashing under the roof cover. This keeps water from getting behind it. We didn't see that in the directions, but figured it makes sense.

Here is the stove after we fired it up and got the chili cooking.. Ok, a little out of sequence, but it was really good chili.

Ok, we thought we could use old screen for a spark arrestor.. Bad idea.. It clogged up in about 30 minutes and reduced the draft to nothing. On a good note, we found some spots in the pipe that were a little leaky, but not before we smoked the hell out of ourselves lol! Here is what the screen looked like after we took it out:

Here is the final product, all completed. The draft is now excellent! We had to let the paint on the pipe burn in, but once that was done, no haze at all in the place. You can open the wood stove 100% with no smoke coming out!

You can see we put in a 2X6 piece of pressure treated, mostly just as a failsafe in case any of the strut supports came loose, the chimney would not slide down. The chances of that happening without it are like a million to one, but why not?

This is a really slick setup jafo. You say you bought all that stuff at the hardware store?

What are the dimensions of that hole and how many lbs of concrete did you end up using to fill it?
