    On page 2 of your solid fuel questionnaire, the diagram and questions regarding the wood stove and stove pipe are pertinent to installations where the stove pipe has a 90 degree elbow and exits the building through the wall behind the stove. My installation has no elbow and the stovepipe exits via the ceiling. Do you have another version of the questionnaire?
