Wood burning stove in a shed chimney kit


Wood burning stove in a shed: everything you require

If like many people, your shed is your refuge, then you want to make it as comfortable as possible. This means finding a way to keep it heated during the colder months. A small wood burning stove is the perfect solution. It can completely transform a cold and unwelcoming shed into a warm and cosy retreat. If you're just considering the idea or wondering about installing a wood burner, then you probably have a lot of questions.

Installation is probably a lot easier than you might think. usually no permissions are required and no certificates. DIY is not a difficult task as the chimney system is "clip-together" and because it is a shed we are not working at a great height.

Why not install a wood burning stove in your shed?

Our kit is also suitable for garages, shacks, home-offices, boats, vans, shepherd's huts and caravans.

What exactly is included to fit my wood burning stove in a shed?

1. Sticky-back fireproof webbing to seal joint between stove and adaptor.
2. Adaptor fits between stove and first twin wall part.
3. 2x 500mm, 2x 1000mm (you can choose to have 3x 1000 - we recommend having the 500's so you can move parts around to ensure joint does not conflict with ceiling or flashing).
4. Weathering Cowl: good all rounder, prevents rain, birds, downdrafts.
5. Adjustable bracket 130-210mm (can upgrade to 225-385mm if required). Or choose to swap for a roof/rafter support. More information further down this page.
6. Finishing plate (sticks to shed ceiling with dabs of silicon glue).
7. Roof flashing (choose aluminium if you have tiles on your shed or EDPM for zinc, felt, corrugated, fibreglass etc.).
8. One locking band per joint is supplied.

Why "twin wall all the way to the stove" rather than using some single skin? We recommend twin wall all the way because it ensures a much stronger chimney but also the gases are kept as hot as possible and this aids draw and performance (the shorter the chimney the more this is important).

Hide the bracket

If you do not wish to see a bracket in the shed (or have no wall within reach) you can choose instead to fit a roof/rafter support that fits in the roof space or directly on the ceiling. You do not need a rafter support AND a wall bracket although you can choose to go this route if you wish.

Note that this part may need "hiding" in the void of the roofspace or may be "on show" on a ceiling. You can box it in of course, as long as you ensure all distance to combustibles regulations are followed (7cm minimum air gap between twin wall and combustible material).

Removeable Flue Section

You might wish to replace the bottom length of twin wall with a "removable" section so the stove can be removed as desired without dismantling the chimney. Building regs does state that a stove should be removable without dismantling a chimney so this can be wise. Our thoughts with such a short chimney are that the chimney is so easy to dismantle anyway this point is rather moot. Note also that Building Regulations are usually not relevant for properties not connected to a main dwelling (don't take our word for it for every situation).

If you do choose to opt for this part it has its own built in adaptor.

Add Additional Lengths

Need to add any extra lengths? You can choose your items here. Do not forget that every extra length requites a narrow locking band as these are not included by default.

You can have up to 1.8 metres of unsupported flue (so 2 metres above the highest bracket or roof support). If more than 1.5 metres unsupported (but less than 2 metres) please add a "wide locking band" to the first joint above the highest bracket /roof support.

What Should I Put Behind My Wood Stove?

Any vertical combustible surfaces near your stoves should be protected with a heat shield. This is a non-combustible material that will protect the roof and walls of your shed. Heat shields are made from non-combustible materials, and they are fitted with a small air gap between the wall and the shield.

Depending on the location of your stove, and the layout of your shed, you may need shields at both the back and side of the stove.

See our article Distance to Combustibles.
