I don’t have a stove in my shop, but I have a fire pit on my wooden deck. I built a platform with the top being concrete board and 1.5” spacing below. The fire pit sits on that. I also placed a piece of concrete board between the fire pit and the deck’s railing. Insurance adjusters have seen it and not had any comments. Actually, I asked one if there were any problems with the fire pit on the deck and he said no. This is Allstate in Missouri.

As others have said, you really need to verify what your local government requires. I would also suggest that you get a couple of quotes from licensed contractors for them to install. Even if you don’t use them you can usually get information on how it should be done.

I don’t have a stove and have never invested much effort in investigating the double walled pipes, but I would be asking if it would be better to run a double walled pipe closer to the stove in the workshop. That way if something were to hit, land or contact the stove pipe there might be better protection the a hot single wall pipe.
