Installing temp. fireplace
I remodeled and removed a wood stove with plans on installing an outdoor wood furnace. I dont have the money for one this winter. I still really want a wood stove to save money(have electric heat). I have the stove and insulated pipes and was thinking about removing the door of a vinyl sliding glass door (have 3 in a row) and making something for the chimney to go through. I want it to be fire safe and not look any more tackier than it needs to be and not ruin the door opening. I was thinking about 2 inch foam installation with t-1-11 glued to the outside and maybe drywall or paneling glued on the inside. I guess i would have to chaulk the outside edges and then scrap it off come spring. I was planning on cutting the hole 2 inches bigger than the pipe in the foam installation and using the fire resistant fiberglass insulation in the gap. Anyway one have any suggestions?
