The National Building Code (of Canada) requires non-combustible material 18” x 18” to the left and right and 30” high. This includes the wall behind a range, a blower unit in a wood framed hood, but does not include a (metal) vent-hood.
The manufacturer will dictate the non-combustible zone for gas ranges and that 18” x 18” zone to the left and right may increase to (18” Left + Range Width + 18” Right) x 30” high.
Another hint - Look in the installation manual of the stove you are specifying. It will show/tell you what the manufacturer’s requirements are. Quite often they are the same as the National Canadian code.
Well, can you imagine my surprise and utter joy to receive an email from HGTV yesterday?

Ah yes, the infamous tax season.
Finding the best accounting program or online service is a challenge.
Spending big money on an actual personal bookkeeper can add up financially.
Then there is the headache of learning your accounting software.
With a glut of online accounting services flooding the market it is a wonder that a busy small business owner might not have the time to go through all the different online accounting systems.
So what is the best online service that is seamless, quick to learn and inexpensive? After painfully slogging through various platforms and even having someone come in and try ineffectively to teach us their chosen software we decided to do our own accounting online with a service called FreshBooks.
It gave us an easy platform, customizable and easy to integrate with our business banking. It also gave us ability to quote on projects, invoice, have my clients sign online and OK the project.
With tax season it was easy to recall statements and reports for our accountant.
The process was quicker, easier to understand and not a long arduous process as it was in the past. Great quick support too.
So if you are looking for a great accounting service online we highly recommend this platform.
After doing business for some 13 years we decided that Freshbooks was deserved of a big shout out in helping us continue to achieve our business goals by providing great accounting service.
