Currently in the middle of a new build but of course having problems! We are putting a stove in our sitting room - the problem is nobody is able to advise me on where the soot/inspection box needs to be situated or how it is to be built in to the chimney. I have spoken to engineers, builder providers and stove manuafacturers but they can't tell me anything about the soot box. I am hoping to put in the side of the fireplace stack inside the house as I don't want to be bridging the cavity with putting it outside. Can anybody offer advise on this or has anybody encountered a similar situation.
I have attached a Very rough drawing of the fireplace as it stands (may help!)
