I purchased my first home about 5 months ago and i'm in the planning stages of adding a wood fireplace in the corner of the living room. The living room is in the front of the house with an attached garage at the same corner of the house in which i want to put the fireplace. The house is a ranch style btw, just standard rectangle. After doing a bunch of research i see i have to get the vent stack close to the preak of the roof to be optimal, but the peak is approximately 12 feet away from where the vent pipe will be coming out vertically from the top of the fireplace. I know i have to go vertical thru a chase thru the attic joists, but can i then install the 30^ elbow and run it the additional 12-16ft to the peak at that angle? I mention 16ft or so as i feel having a vent stack on the front side of the house would look funny or am i just crazy hehe. Your thoughts and ideas please, thankyou.
