We haven’t installed our stove yet, but we are really looking forward to it! It’s a beautiful and functional piece.
We will not use the stove for several months, we have to build the house yet.
The following links on the 550 do not list the cook top clearance to the ceiling: Click to see Technical drawings for the N550 Wood-fired Oven Click to see Flue Installation Click to see The Interior Oven Working I should have read the brochure more carefully. Unfortunately we have a stove that we cannot use. We are 9 inches short of the 51 inch clearance to the ceiling listed in the specs. The installers refused to install it. We have a cooking fireplace that was built in 1825 and the ceiling is very low. It is still in the shrink wrap. It is probably asking a lot but a call to reinforce clearances for a product would be helpful.
