I am planning to install my oven as an attachment to my kitchen ( a kind of mini "addition" to the home), which is on the first floor of a my two story home with a high pitch roof. Local building codes say I have to make the chimney extend 2 feet above any roof within 10 feet of it. As the kitchen is on the gable end of the home, this means the chimney pipe must go up about 3 stories! Does anyone have any experience with this kind of height? Will the oven vent properly? It sure won't look very good, but I may have no choice. Would it vent properly if I ignore the code and simply pop it up 2 feet above the top of the dome roof (which will be outside of, but next to, the home)?
No announcement yet.
