I know that if I knew what terms to search for, then I could help myself, but I don't know what words to use, so FOOniverse it is!
We have a wood-burning stove in our basement. Previous owners had used it, but we are never going to use it (not to mention it is stamped as needing 21 1/8" of clearance while there is only 7" of clearance, and the wallboard is normal drywall, and I could go on and on). So, I am going to start taking apart to remove it and make the space a closet.
The only question is: How do I "cap-off" where the pipe from the stove goes into the wall?
Do I simply get a cap the size of the hole/pipe and stick it on there?
Do I seal it in any way?
Do I need to do anything to the chimney on the roof?
It can't be that hard to do, whatever the solution is.
