I tried to do that, Steven, but the insurance was not willing to budge. I told the lady, "So let me get this straight, you're afraid that I'm going to use a wood stove in the middle of the summer?" I have since removed the stove, but I think I'm going to save up enough to switch insurance companies.

I had insurance before closing on the house. This became a problem after I closed.

I like that idea. The only problem is that I want a quality job done. I'm also thinking that I can get a few bucks out of the wood stove itself.

It's about 6 inches from the wall on the corners, 22 inches from the wall in the center. It already has heat shielding. Insurance says that those measures are simply not good enough. The funny thing is, is that I don't intend to use this wood stove.

I agree that this is a safety hazard and likely not up to code. My inspection confirmed this. That being said, I'm buying it anyway. I'm getting the house for a bargain and this is about the only problem with the house. I'm not going to use it as a bargaining chip since I've already got the price as low as it can go. That being said, I'm not a DIYer, but I'd like to be. I got a quote of $2,000 for someone to do it for me. Is this about right? I was hoping for closer to $850.
