Default Changing stovepipe from center to ??

I have a Nomad Shelter 20' yurt. These yurts have the stovepipe going through the center/skylight. I would like to move my stove out of the center, towards one wall. Nomad said I should put elbows in and still allow the top sections (metalbestos) to go through the center/skylight.

Has anyone out there done this before?
How did you secure the pipe so the whole mess didn't slide out of the skylight?

If I decided to have the stovepipe go through the wall instead of the skylight, what is the best way to secure it?

Thanks

One benefit of keeping a stove pipe inside as long as possible is a lot of heat goes up that pipe. So longer it stays inside longer it helps heat your space.

You could go with their recommendation, and use some ducting strapping to secure to a rafter to keep it stable.

Another option of course is to direct the pipe out the wall, which tends to be the standard for most folks.

The best 'through the yurt wall' stove pipe installs I've seen online are secured to a solidly built vertical support system stationed a couple feet outside the yurt.
Online pics will give you some ideas. Good luck.

Oh BTW it should be mentioned every elbow slows the smoke rising out of a pipe making it build up more creosote. Sharper the angle more is slows, so a 45 degree elbow will slow less than a 90 degree. Running a pipe at an angle along the rafters then out the center would take 2 45ish degree angles, thought remember your going to need a lot more stove pipe to run an angle. While running out a wall takes 2 90 degree angles. There is some good argument for doing the angled pipe inside to the center hole. Though there are plenty of people with yurts with the pipe coming out the wall and they don't have much issue and it can in fact make cleaning the pipe easier having it out side and easier to reach.

There are pros and cons for both methods, I would say the biggest thing to decide which is best for you is likely how much of an eye sore would interior piping be for you, and how handy are you to do the mods to pipe out the wall? Angling will take the lest mod work but might seem unsightly, piping out the wall will take some mod work but remove the pipe from sight and need less length of pipe.
