Default New arch build

I'm working on a new arch for a set of 2x6 raised flue pans I have ordered from Jim. The arch will be 32" tall. How tall should the fire box be from the grates to the bottom of the pan ? I was thinking of making the firebox 18 deep , for 16" wood, and then sloping the back wall of the firebox 4" towards the flue pan . How much space should I allow under the flue pan. Should the space be tapered from the front of the pan to the back ?
Jim said to use a 10" stack with a 6x18" transition . With an approx. 78.5 sq. in. area of the stack and a net inside width of 21" of the arch , do I need approx. 3.75 under the pan ?
Does anybody have a source for cast iron stove doors ?
I'm just wanting to get it right the first time . Thanks Tom
