Creosote is what I was worried about. It's been decades, but remembering what chimney fires can do would make me more manic about maintenance. I would probably do a refresher on all the upkeep before starting down that path again. Funny thing is, I BUILT a stove a few years ago. Buddy used it in his fish camp, to keep water warm for the staff (and cook lunch). Never even loaded it myself lol.
Ask me if you go that route. If there's one thing I am good at, it's heating a house with wood without mucking up the chimney. We've had this stove since 1994. We check the chimney yearly, run a brush down it. There's never been more than a bit of light ash.
