It’s Getting Hot in Here!

We’ve been waiting for this project! We installed our Kimberly Woodstove from Unforgettable Fire, and have had some pretty spectacular fires! Here are some key photos:

There are so many options out there for small, efficient, wood stoves. There are several reason I decided to go with this model.

The stove is efficient and light-weight, rated for a 1,500 sq. ft. room (our house is only 280 sq. ft.), it produces low emissions, the air intake comes through the floor of the trailer, and it requires minimal clearances.

Please read the specifications that come straight from Unforgettable Fire’s website:

The following few photos are of the lower portions of the stove’s flu that we needed to attach to the wood stove and align just perfectly so that we could mark where to cut a hole in the ceiling, while still keeping the required clearances.

The flu is insulated and comes with gaskets to make a nice seal, when put together.

The scary part – cutting a hole through our perfectly good roof! We TRIPLE checked our markings on the ceiling before diving in the pine with a hole saw and then cutting the rest with a jigsaw.

After getting through the layer of pine, there were 4″ of polyisocyanurate insulation board to cut through. What a mess that made.

Then we made more markings on the plywood roof sheathing, just to make sure that the flu would be level and so would the box that it goes through.



The black box gets installed straight up through the ceiling and roof and provides a space between the flu that runs through it, and the rest of the roofing materials. This is a safety precaution that must be followed.

We then cut a hole in our metal panel on the roof and installed a rubber chimney boot around the flu to seal the hole we had made. We generously caulked underneath the boot and screwed it to the roof. The cap was the last piece to be installed.

Using a 2″ PVC pipe as the fresh air intake through the floor, we were able to start a fire the day after everything was put together:



After a break-in period of about one week, we should be able to see the efficiency of this beautiful stove.
