    Hi Forum- This is my first post, so good to meet you all and thanks for your help here. I'm thinking about how to design a kitchen remodel, specifically what to do with over the range. The existing solution is something that as far as I can tell is not made anymore - a metal shelf with power...

    For any home, there is doubtlessly utilization of a copper range hood or any sort is hindering to the occupant's well-being.

    Hey everyone. I received some very helpful advice before from this site and hoping to be so lucky again... I'm in the process of remodeling the kitchen. My question is in regard to the new microwave/range hood we bought to go over the gas range. We moved the range hood to a new location in...

    Dear all, I am installing a range hood and trying to vent it out (the old one pushes the air back into the room!) On the other side of the kitchen is the water heater that already has a vent going up the roof. Can I just connect the range hood pipe into the already-there pipe of the water...
