small wood burning stove in sunroom

We are considering going with an unconditioned sunroom (going with everyone's advice and NOT going to try to make the room part of the house!)- the room will be framed with windows and a french door. We would like to add a small wood burning stove in the far corner (away from the house). Firstly, is this possible if the stack is a certain height above the suroom roof (but not above the roof of the house)?

thank you for your time,

It can be done, but just be VERY careful!!

First, keep the woodstove very small. Second, get one approved for mobile or modular homes. And third, use a triple wall flue and have MORE THAN a 1' gap between the stovepipe and the roof.

You're playing with fire. Do it properly. I know of 2 people who have played with rattlesnakes and lived to tell about it too!!
