Want a woodstove IN an interior wall

I'd really like to be able to have a wood stove that sits inbetween my living room, and bedroom, so I can view the fire from either side. I've got a manufactured home built in '88.

How difficult would this be to do?

It wouldn't be easy. The stove needs a chimney! Since installing a masonary chimney in the middle of a MH would be very difficult [it starts with a footer on/in the ground] the only other option would be a double or triple wall pipe. I don't know how hard it would be to correctly install and flash a flue in the middle of a MH.

You would want to strictly adhere to both manufacture and bldg codes. Check with your home owner's insurance to make sure they will still cover your home with a wood stove. expect to pay a surcharge.

I wouldn't mind if the chimney is on either side of the wall, I'd just like to view the fire from both rooms. I was thinking double walled stainless steel pipe. And yep my insurance went up an additional 150 bucks a year for having a wood stove.
Anyway I just thought I'd see if it could be done without too many complications.
Thanks,
Carl

Hey look tightwad, if you want to be able to have wild monkey sex in front of a fireplace in two rooms, it's gonna cost you some money, ok?? Just pick one or the other and save the cash!!

Seriously, there are a number of options, but they are all expensive, like probably $ 5,000.00 - $ 7,000.00. I was looking at just such a system at a dealer's place in Ulster County, NY the other day. It is an elaborate and highly efficient fireplace of sorts, with a metalbestos type chimney. I haven't seen any woodstoves with two sided viewing around these parts though...

Good luck!

Yeah I was looking to spend 3-4K on a decent setup.

I don't think it's a load bearing wall.
Would it just be a matter of finding a wood stove that can be viewed from both sides, knocking a hole in the wall, adding the proper heat shields, and running the stove pipe up one side?

I'd run it up the bedroom side, so the living room has a cleaner look, then I can picture a flatscreen above the fireplace in the living room

I would like to have a stove like this too but the wife would never move her wall of fish tanks. I sell manufactured homes in Oregon. Wood stoves are not allowed in bedrooms here. I would look for a Mich. Manufactured Home Association and ask them if it is allowed. It shouldnt be any harder than doing it in any other house. Yes double wall or insulated pipe would be my guess for code.

Well my plans had changed slightly, as I wanted one soon, and didn't really think the bedroom was large enough to enjoy it.

So I got a basic wood stove, double walled stainless steel pipe, and a hearth pad installed for about 2900.

This is the one, http://www.quadrafire.com/Products/W...asp?f=yosemite

Thanks for the help guys, maybe the advice will help out others as well.
