Default Planning a trip to Marina CA

This is my first post in the forums. I have enjoyed countless hours reading the forums and admiring some amazing projects.

With a rough plan in mind I checked local (OC CA) Building material yards and have found them lacking. So I ordered a 42 inch Kit from FB and plan Visit the Mother Ship in Marina in a couple of weeks to pick up the materials.
I was surprised by the cost of the insulated chimney systems by Duratech. As an alternative, dose anyone have experience installing a metal single walled chimney liner such as the product here: 316L Chimney Champion Rigid Chimney Liner Kit - 8" | WoodlandDirect.com: Chimney Accessories, Chimney Liners, Champion Ridgid 316L Chimney Liner Kits

How important is it that the chimney be insulated (aside from the obvious isolation from combustibles)?


Though an avid DIYer - this is my first project involving masonry. All advise welcomed.

-I think a single wall metal pipe doesn't have the longevity. But I don't know (it depends on what it's made of). The link you had for the pipe doesn't say it's for wood (for gas, coal, and oil).
-Bring a big truck for the kit, it's heavy.

Your location is O.C. Is that Ontario Canada or Orange County, CA? The open house was in May last year - I would plan the pick up then. It's a good time to meet people and learn some tricks.

Hi Mike
Thanks for the feedback. I have a full sized pick up with a V-8. I think I am ready for the load.

I am in S, California. Did Forno Bravo have an open house last May in Marina?
