    It's right in the middle of the basement.
    The blocks are the chimney. (I assume that's what you're looking at?)
    It is a little close to the stud wall of the left, hence the heat shield.
    Why does the rest of the country get first dibbs on half my income?

    Did you check what the minimum clearances are for that? Having heat isn't helpful if it burns the house down on you.

    I put in a power vented water heater, so this fit in place of the old one.
    Now if the power goes out, I can run this to keep some heat in the basement.
    I'm not exactly the best guy to be giving advice on gas fireplaces....I've only ever installed one....and it had a pipe inside a pipe. I can't remember which way it went for sure, but the inner pipe drew in fresh air, and the outer was the exhaust, or visa versa. Either way, the unit had to draw it's air from outside the house. I also remember clearances had to be maintained around the unit. Do you have a manual for that one ?

    I think RELOAD is poking a bit of fun as the picture is rotated 90' thus making it look like the stove is on the wall...

    No manual for that one.
    It's an older model, and draws its air from inside the house.
    As far as clearances go, I'm pretty sure it's too close to the wall on the left. I'm still deciding what to do there.
    If the power goes out before I have a permanent decision, I'll probably just cut that wall out.

    The problem is the wood of the studs catching fire.

    I'd start by just leaning a sheet of 5/8" thick drywall against the wall, and maybe another sheet between the stove and the furnace with the top of the sheet leaning against the duct above furnace.
    Don't nail them to the wall.
    Neither sheet touching anything that gets hot -- must have convection air flow over the surfaces of the sheet.

    You don't have enough room to use Roxul (mineral wool) insulation between the heat and the studs -- otherwise that would be good.
    Air gap, then Firebrick, then mineral wool, then air gap, then drywall, then studs, would have been good.

    The furnace itself doesn't get hot enough to cause drywall any concern, especially not the ductwork above it. The furnace needs airflow, but you can put drywall within an inch of either side of a furnace according to building inspectors.

    I have no idea whatsoever what the legal/reasonable 'drywall' clearance near the stove would be.

    There's only one stud that's too close, and I put a heat shield on it.
    If I need to run it, I'll probably want the heat to get to the other side of that wall anyway, so I may cut that stud out, and put some grilles in the wall or something.
