Default Backwoods owners I need your help

Hey guys i'm looking for anyone who owns a bws that would be willing to help me with some measurements. Im looking to start a clone shortly and i can only guess on some of these measurements. Im trying to clone the competitor so if someone owns that model it would be great.

exhaust stack my guess was 2" x 4"

distance from ceiling to false wall allowing heat from firebox guessing 1"-2"

thickness of heat diverter 3/16", 1/8", 1/4"

height/width/depth of firebox

air inlet on side height/width

square tubing used for frame I think its 1x1

I appreciate any info if anyone has up close pictures with a measuring tape maybe showing dimensions that would be awesome.
