Its always a load case question. ... in my situation, (10x12 shed), I was sure that a set of 2x8 @ 16'' c/c with a joist span around 8'0'' would clearly hold the thing Well. Ses table belowhttps://pin.it/rfycvjnds63cr7
Thank you for your comment !I Forget To put the dimension on the drawing you're right.The distance between the 2 beams is about 7'-6'' ...And how I come up with? ... by joining 2x 2x10 together. ... not sure I got your question right?Best regardsSimon

Hi, I had the same question and worries in fact... yes, black chimney's supposed to be for interior use ... and yes, it will probably rust ... but as-off right now (2 month later), no rust happen yet ! To answer your question, it cost me around 180$/can for everthing ... way under the price of a real 2 wall stainless steel chimney ... I took the guess and I'm still happy with my decision ... In my opinion, it really depend on the type of construction you're doing ... if it's like a shack ... I found sad to put the same amount of me for the chinmey and the whole project itself ...

Metal roofing with the wood for the structure cost me 1250$ ... If I add the door, windows, chimney and fasteners ... I came up with a total cost around 2200$/can ...

Absolutly right avoir the meshing in the concrete slab ... I missed that one I agree.. always place for improvement ... that's the thing with building staffThanks for your comment !
Thank you for your comment !, Regarding the smoke ... The black chimney is there for the fire smoke ... The steam that will come from maple water will be evacuate thru the 2 opening in the roof (unfortunately call a chimey too) I understand it can be confusing ... hope it's more clear ...I agree with you about the concrete slab ... pretty sure it will crack somehow ... if so ... it will still keep is function and it will have more charm ;-p ...I will post another instructable only for the making of maple sirop in the next month ... I will explain it deeper ...
Thank you for your comment ! I also looked at what type of product stores can offer me and at what price ... and that's why I came out with this project ... Product of the shelf were really expensive and oftently build with poor material ... (in my opinion) ... I encourage you to build your own !

Thanks alot for you comments, I appreciate !
Hi, I just added some more photo and instruction regarding the electrical connection, hope it will help ! You will also notice some staple in the side of the pocket to help hanging the light ... but in fact, the loop it self kept everything in place ...
Hi, firstly, thanks for the comment ... I understand you well ... I like playing with wood and other things more than electricity let say ....I will try to explain it to you simply.First, I split my source of power in the attic in 2. (It's the 2 wires thatyou see down the chains ...So in the first electric box, I connected one of the power wire, 2 lamp sockets andthe bridge that brings the current to the second box. In the second box, I alreadyhad the bridge, plus 3 lamp sockets.For summary, I had 5 lights plugged into the first 2 electric boxes.Same thing with the right electrical box, the left power wire, a bridge and2 sockets.and in the last boxes, I had the bridge, plus 2 lights ...So here, I hope I was clear enough.

Hi, Thank you for your comment ! The things with the cut-out was that I need a deeper depth than my skill saw allowed me to do ... The goal was to reduce weight ... but you're totally right ... your technic is much faster and at the end, i didnt reduce that much weight by going a bit deeper ! We always learn !
Thank you sir !
