Default woodstove in yurt

Hi all

we put up our yurt in the spring & are now getting ready for fall/winter.

I was gifted a woodstove - about 30 years old, but barely used in a condo of old folks. from denmark.

planning on putting it in the yurt, but don't know a lot about wood stoves. I've been over on the hearth.com site & can't find much out about it other than it is probably a hwam.

any thoughts/concerns you could see in installing in our 24' pacific yurt?

thx.

I would install it through the wall if I were you, not the roof. A lot less of a chance of it causing a leak that way. Here is my adventure in putting up a chimney and my first wood stove:

And then upgrading to my latest wood stove:

Jafo. Did you ever post the results/impression of your new 700 lb soapstone stove with the listed 10-12 burn time?

I haven't yet because it really has not been cold enough to do a good test. I can say that we did use it last weekend and it cooked us. I had to open the

dome

lol. It was only 40 degrees out though.

We are heading up to the yurt for three nights today. It is supposed to get into the 30's, so we will definitely be trying out the stove!

We have a vintage cast iron stove in our yurt and so far we've been happy with it. This winter will show us if it's really enough.

I have a question about a chimney. How do you make a hole in the wall for it. How far should it be from the wall? Can someone share plans and pictures of existing set up?
