Re: fire resistance in interior wall
It is imperative that you check with your local building code office for requirements. As Junkout states, you must have a 1" separation between the backerboard and the combustible wall behind it, you can't just attack the backer board and tile directly to the wall. You will also have requirements for the footprint and hearth area of the stove. While you may not think this is important, it not only affects your safety, it affects your insurance coverage as well.
