Moving the Microwave and Adding a Range Hood
We removed the microwave from underneath the cabinets and cut holes in the ceiling for the duct that will vent a new range hood.
I then get on the roof and cut the access hole for the range hood’s ductwork.
Now we’re ready to install a Broan range hood that has a three-speed motor and moves 600 cubic feet of air per minute with a super-quiet motor.
As for the microwave, we cut a hole for that in the island, add a shelf, and we have what appears to be a built-in microwave!
Now, Whit and Andrea have a space that truly fits their family’s needs, and the materials for this project cost less than $1,000.
