Quote from: muldoon on November 18, 2009, 06:37:26 PMwelcome trndrv. thats a neat looking place, sounds fantastic as a fishing shack. I like your plans of building up a camping compound. I do have one question from the pictures, it seems to me the roof asphalt shingles should come down over the flashing on that vent stack.With roll roofing like that IF there is sealant under the roof jack it should be OK. I would have stuffed the jack under all of the roofing that was sliced so a upside down U cut out of the upper strip. Laid over the lower strip just as it was done. Lead the water to day light aways. Does it stay dry and tight as it is now? What it really lacks and need is a storm collar that attaches or wraps around the round pipe , just above the roof jack. As it is water can / does and will run down the pipe all the way to the stove top. Which IF the stove is heated up isn't much of a issue except the sizzle sound , but when it's not heated the water will cause rust and run off the stove top and / or into the stove , possibly on to the floor. I am just asking the question as this is not something I have to do just yet and am hoping to get an answer mostly for myself. Thanks for sharing your project, I think it's cool.

Quote from: lonelytree on December 20, 2009, 04:29:30 AMHi Dan! Anchorage here. Just got my cabin warm and dry. You really need to evaluate that piping before lighting it off. Did they install some kind of thimble in the roof? Mine is Double wall Metalbestos, then a round ring, then a square box where it goes through the roof. Your foundation is fine for the KP. Many are done the same way. If you wish to raise the place you can just add some blocking and bracing. The KP has very little permafrost. If you are in clay you may experience some frost jacking. If so, it is accepted as normal and adjusting should be as easy as possible. Call Metal Magic in Palmer for the metal for your roof. If hire it out CALL ME FIRST. I got screwed. Warm and dry is your first concern. Security is next. Protect your investment.Mike

That black pipe should be replaced with insulated pipe following all the proper clearances. And a storm collar and a pipe cap added before any fire is built in the stove.
