My husband and I wanted/needed a stove hood, we haven't had one for 15 or more years. So the day came when we purchased a stove hood, the box sat in the extra room for about 7 months, and the day came for installing. Well, here we go. Out of the box it comes.
The wall tiles have to be removed, not such a hard job.
Now for the reason for the hole behind the stove? I have no answers, but it is fixed now.
All finished and done, and all done in one day, my husband is not a carpenter, by trade, but he is a good investigator with the Solicitor's office. When we need "hammer to nail" in our house, we try to do the job ourselves.
We are happy with the results.
