The summer house is a ready made wooden construction, concrete base with a centre BBQ and a hood over the BBQ and a short chimney that sicks up about 3’ above the roof.
So I can extend the chimney down but not really go any higher.

Sorry if I seem negative, I honestly appreciate your help I just want to be clear on certain things.
