Not a pro, so take this for what it's worth...I wouldn't bother putting GFCI on that if it's on a dedicated circuit, but then I don't live in a jurisdiction that requires inspection. But I've put in 2 and didn't bother with that. As for the venting, B vent isn't all that expensive, I would run it all the way. That way everything locks together very nicely. I didn't box in around the roof either. The vent sticks above the roof line by maybe 3', and is held up by the ceiling support, and laterally by the roof flashing piece. This isn't a tough job, the hardest part is getting the heater to the ceiling. I used a platform lift to get mine up up to the hangers. It wasn't early tall enough, so I put a steel drum on it, and sat the heater on the drum.
