Diverting a stove pipe interfering with chimney draft?
I am in the planning stages of building a home, which includes a wood stove in the great room. To create the best draft and because of window location, I am limited on where I can place my stove. The best location is centered in my great room, but places it directly under an supporting beam. My thought is to run the stove pipe several feet up from the top of my stove, divert it around the LVL with a 45 degree elbow, and another to bring it back to vertical and continue straight through to the roof. I'm wondering whether this will have a large impact on my draft and/or cleaning of the pipe? FYI, the pipe will be located in the house, double walled stainless steel, and come out close to the peak of the roof.
Thanks in advance.
