Hey thanks again for the response.

I see now that you do have the secondary air inlets on the side as shown in the first diagram. I didn't notice them first off and thought you where just pulling off the primary plenum in the front, your design makes sense to me now. My insert will be about a third larger than this one and I would like to add the shroud over the back and top to facilitate a forced air blower to pull the heat out of the alcove.

If I get the go ahead this year I will post up my progress, I may just get the plans built this year and have to start the project next summer due to way too many irons in the fire now HAHA.

Oh and what thickness material is that? You might have said but I couldn't find it.
I was going to do 1/4" initially but found allot of commercial stoves are 3/16" so i might follow the trend. That might be a case of bigger is not better as far as heat transfer goes.
