It works fine for interior use. You will want triple wall to go through the roof and outside, and a thimble for the ceiling.

That sounds like snaplock, and you only use it in the room. At the ceiling you would want to transition to a triple wall type of pipe that would go through the attic/roof, to the chimney cap. At the roof you will need the appropriate flashing/storm collar. Take a look at the illustration in the link, it shows the parts.

Check local codes or you may not have insurance. the stove may have to meet standards, the pipe will have to meet standards and the clearance distances, materials may differ from those of the manufacturer. I love wood stoves and have always had them even on my boats but you have to respect them and in buildings anyway, you gotta watch the code.

ive already gone through this several years ago, the single wall is ok if its inside but where you go through the wall and for exterior use, you want stainless double or triple wall stainless steel pipe, the single wall will not hold up more then a couple of years, it will rust and deteriorate and you will be faced with replacing all of your pipe, there it goes from the stove out the wall needs to be at least double wall, this pipe gets very hot and you could easily set your building on fire if you dont use the thimble and the right pipe..the stainless pipe is expensive, but if your going to do this right, that is what you should use..just my 2 cents on this subject.. and an added P.S, do as paul suggested, what shipwright said, check your local code, you dont want to have a fire and have no insurance when they see you used the wrong pipe…i love my wood stove and i love it even more knowing its piped correctly…..

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.

A good portion of your heat comes from that single wall pipe.

you can run the double wall or triple if you want from the stove, ive seen it done that way, but i have also seen the single wall used until it goes through the ceiling or wall, the single wall let you get more heat into your shop and its not exposed to the rain when its used indoors so it will last longer inside, so you do have several safe ways to do it, but doing as stated above where you get someone to give quotes, then you can ask questions and figure out how and what you need, and if you think you can do it yourself, then you save some money, but make sure its all good and safe, as you dont want to loose your building or your tools from a bad install..i think you pretty much get what were saying here…good luck and enjoy your stove and being warm in your shop..

That stove will heat that building with no problem. You’ll be opening the door to let heat out. I agree, be safe. The most important part is through the wall or ceiling and roof.

I’ve got single wall inside and out. Replacing it every couple years is not a big deal but if I ever get a good deal on insulated pipe I would buy it.

I also recently put in a waste oil drip..wow, I wish I had done that years ago. Fires burn hotter, longer and are easier to start.
