Off Grid Direct Vent Furnace

Options

I have a project involving an off grid structure and I need to find a small direct vent furnace.

The problem I am having is that all the direct vent models I can find go straight out the back. Due to high snow levels, I need to go either through the roof or snorkel up and out.

Requirements:
Direct Vent (no combustion air from space)
Runs without electricity
Approx 15,000 btu/hr.(before alt deration)
Able to operate at 11,000 feet
Can mount on wall or in middle of room
Propane

Thanks in advance

    look at direct vent gas logs.. if you add a chimney they can direct vent with twin pipes.. or can raise up off the unit a certain distance and the go direct out the wall at a higher level

    I don't know if this suits your conditions but Beckett makes a D/C powered oil burner. Gas, I'm not sure. Beckett fresh air kit. You can't do a B vent or triple wall? Must be direct vent?
    Personally, I never thought there would be an application for a D/C burner. What powers the distribution?
