    But surely it would be a lot safer not having to deal with ceilings, roof trusses, roof insulation, possible water pipes and electric cables?

    Going even more off topic now, I cringe every time I see a fire place in a thatch roof house or built in braai in a lapa, it can probably be done "safely"to keep the insurance happy, but I can't really imagine myself sleeping soundly in such a house with a fire going through the night.
    If the pipe goes straight out the wall you are loosing a significant portion of the heating, always run the flue as far as possible inside the house.

    Option 1, pipe inside to below ceiling 2 x 90 deg bends to take pipe through wall and then up
    Option 2, pipe throught ceiling and roof - use double walled pipe with insulation for portion through ceiling and roof

    I have both setups in the house
