Singe wall stove pipe works fine. You can't back the stove up to the wall if its stick frame/drywall construction. Need to give it a foot or more clearance. You can buy the standard stove pipe at any Tractor Supply etc. I think it comes in 3 or 4' lengths and there are 90 degree elbows and wll plates for transition through walls etc.

Like I said...use some common sense. Keep it clean and keep it away from things that burn Don't burn green wood or coniferous woods that create a lot of creosote.

Line the bottom of the stove with some fire brick or use some exapnded mesh to keep the fire off the bottom and it will last a lot longer. Firebricks are cheap but heavy.
