Shed Small Stove Installation With A Wall Exit Flue Set Up.

The short video below shows you an overview of this wall exit flue set up. The Hobbit stove installed in the shed has a stainless steel cook top option along with the new pedestal stand option. The decorative base that the pedestal base itself is standing on was made from old bits of cast stove that were laying around the garden. Rubbed down and polished up they make an attractive additional feature. Another good option is to make a raised base in the corner which can be used to store logs under.

To mark the exit point for the wall exit you can set the stove and first few components up on the hearth and mark where the flue comes on the wall. The stove can then be removed again and the shielding and hole cut. It is a good idea to cut the hole in the wood initially close enough to just allow the twin wall pipe to pass through. This will keep the flue in the correct place whilst you set the remaining parts in place. The hole in the wood needs eventually to be cut back 50mm from the pipe, eg. a 250mm diameter hole using 100mm internal diameter twin wall flue pipe.

To shield the wooden walls from the heat of the stove and to allow us to site it 200mm from the sides of the stove into the corner of the shed, we initially installed some enamelled heat shields. These were set off the timber by using spacers to create a 30mm air gap behind each plate. As the flue pipe passes through this shielding a square hole was cut 155mm x 155mm. This whole is hidden behind the first internal round stainless steel trim plate.   We can supply these enamel shielding plates so contact us for more information.

Here are the dimensions of the Hobbit stove on the new pedestal stand. This dimensional drawing also includes the stove heat shield options which reduce the distance to shielded combustibles to only 100mm. They were not required in this instance but maybe required if you do want any shielding on the wall or are in a very tight space such as a vehicle. For more information about the separate enamel heat shields for the wall, the pedestal base or the stove heat shields contact us. For information about installing a small stove in a van go here.

Step by step guide.

small stove installed in a shed wall exit

  1. Position a hearth plate to the floor – This needs to be a minimum of 12mm thick and extend 150mm to the sides of the stove and 225mm from the door forwards of the stove.
  2. Position the stove and offer up the flue components which will allow you to mark the exit point on the wall.
  3. Remove the stove and flue and install heat shields to the wall. These like the above will need to be modified to accommodate the flue. Ours has a 155mm x 155mm square hole cut into it which will be covered by the trim plate.
  4. Cut a 155mm hole in the wall.
  5. Reposition the stove and offer up the 45 degree elbow, adaptor and 150mm length, which should extend to the outside.
  6. Connect the 90 T and cap and position the mounting board onto the shed with a temporary screw. Drill 6 holes and bolt the wall support brackets to the mounting board and shed wall.
  7. Connect the wall support collar to the first length of 500mm twin wall and join this to the 90 T. Bring the support collar down onto the wall support plate and then tighten the collar bolts.
  8. Connect the second 500mm length and use this to position the wall band support. The wall band support should be fixed as high as possible to the shed to provide maximum support.
  9. Now all the support components are in place the system can be deconstructed and then the flue reassembled with the fire cement seals between the collar on the stove and the 45 degree elbow and then the connection between the elbow and twin wall adaptor.
  10. Having fie cemented the first two components the remaining flue parts can be assembled. The trim plates can be attached inside and outside using the heat proof silicone. It is a good idea to also use a little to seal the mounting board to the wall. The system has been finished by adding a 1000mm length topped with an anti down draught cowl due to the proximity of the trees around the shed.

Our Hobbit Stove Has Been Fitted!

"We had a Hobbit stove fitted this week by Alex Reay from Flues and Fires, and I just wanted to get in touch to say it is AMAZING and we love it! We have a lovely cast iron tiled fireplace which I was desperate not to lose when we installed a small wood burning stove, but until I found the Hobbit on Google, everyone told me it would be impossible to keep the fire surround. The Hobbit is perfect - not only does it fit very snugly, but it looks fantastic and the blue door complements the tiles very nicely. We are sitting enjoying a fire now and absolutely loving it! Thanks for creating such an amazing product."

The Best Stove Ever!

"It’s the best stove ever! It’s easy to light, very efficient, burns anthracite and stays in overnight (ours has been in for three weeks now). It even keeps a kettle of water at the ready for a cuppa! What more can I say, we love it! Just the thing to make our Yorkshire home cosy, and the cat loves it too!"

Lynn and Andrew, West Yorkshire

First Small Stove Installation

Was looking for a small stove for my first self-install. Found Mark very helpful. Knowledgeable, friendly service. Stove burns well and generates lots more heat than the previous open fire. What is not to like?

A Huge Thank You!

"Dear Mark and Gill, a huge thank you for designing and making the Hobbit stove! We had two different London-based fireplace companies tell us that we simply had to knock out the old cast iron and tile fireplace to fit in a woodburning stove, and that there was no other option! Then we found you online. We are delighted with our little Hobbit, which swallows up logs and kicks out a good amount of heat. Perfect for the winter! I will also be writing to the London-based fireplace companies to put the Hobbit on their radar. Best wishes."

It's Brilliant!

"Hi Mark, here's a photo of the Hobbit installed in my Yorkist grate. It’s brilliant! It also throws out a lot more heat than the grate did."

The Little Hobbit Has Stepped Up To The Challenge!

"We just wanted to say how impressed and how much of a life saver our little Hobbit has been! It was fitted a few months ago in our holiday home in Rhu, Scotland, which is a large open plan conversion in a Victorian house. This weekend our boiler decided it was not going to play ball. The little Hobbit has stepped up to the challenge, providing heat to a very large area, about twenty eight foot by twenty four foot with a high ceiling of about eighteen foot, keeping the room reasonably warm, warm enough for us not to use cardigans!”

Our Pride And Joy!

"What a fantastic fireplace with the beautiful Hobbit stove. It fits perfectly into the small space and throws out a lot of heat. Here's a photo of our little stove, now our pride and joy and much admired by all who see and feel the warmth."

Small Stove Review 11


"Just to bid you all a Happy New Year and to say how much we’re enjoying having our Hobbit stove! It was easy to fit with the help of your excellent ‘how to’ videos and we’re just awaiting our inspection by building control for the certification. The Hobbit has fitted neatly into the hearth vacated by the old gas back boiler (with a little cosmetic rendering) and never ceases to surprise us how much heat it can deliver to the point that the new condenser boiler is having an easy life, thereby saving us on gas bills too! Everyone loves having a ‘real fire’ in the living room."
