Kitchen Renovation, Stove & Vent Hood


I am really excited to share with you about our kitchen improvements! It was just last year when we finished. We lived with an old dingy stove and light blue counter tops for a while. The stove had to be the original stove that came with the home, the burners were going out and oven temperature were not accurate. Purchasing a new stove is what got us in motion to start our kitchen renovation! Yay!

We renovated our kitchen in sections, starting with the pantry first. (Kitchen Pantry posted Nov. 15, 2015) Next was installing a new stove and vent hood. Do you remember when I said the “good, bad and the ugly?”  Well your about to see.

 The old dingy stove and light blue counter top.

This vent hood was oversize, do not think this was the original vent hood.

After new stove was installed and of course we need a new vent hood to go with the new stove.

As you can see we have a real vent hood, one that exhaust air to the outside! The last home I lived in only had a hood that just recirculated the air. Huh! I like to think our 1987 single wide Bonnell was the cream of the crop at the time. (Smiles)

Okay, I could not believe! Inside our vent hood was a big wasp nest and a mud dauber nest! If you have a vent hood that exhaust air to the outside you might want to check your vent pipe on the roof. To prevent flying insects to helping themselves to the vent pipe, my husband put a mesh screen over the roof vent.
