We are in the process of fitting a wood burning stove as the main heating in our living area. It will initially use an existing chimney which is on an outer wall.
I want to transfer the stove away from this location onto a thick slate inner wall ( we live in an old barn conversion ) and basically run a new metal flue straight up through the ceiling and slate roof. It is a better idea to heat an internal wall. I know about keeping the thing away from flammable materials etc. and this can be done.
The question is this. The exposed wall which will hold the stove separates the living room from two bedrooms, one on the ground floor and one above - the living room is quite high at this point. I cannot find anything which would prevent the flue from the stove being taken through the separating wall ahd then run up through the bedrooms to the roof. This would then mean that these two rooms would be heated by the flue which passes through them if uninsulated sections were included.
Are there any comments on this? Has anyone done it?
