Ahhh---the maxi fan---forgot about that. That takes care of the controlled ventilation requirement. Crack the door, turn on the fan, everything disappears through the roof vent. Still the whole cabinet issue, but that could be dealt with by a custom fab stainless cover on the underside of the cabinets. We do plan on doing most of our cooking on a Weber but its not so good with making coffee

The absolute number one reason for cooking outdoors, in my mind. The weather has to be absolutely terrible to force me inside, like the coastal winter weather Donna wants to camp in. .

If someone were doing a lot of cooking inside the fan might be a good idea, but the reason mine is hard to clean is that it's not a flat surface and the angle I have to approach it is awkward to get to where I have to get. It's easier to wipe down a cabinet.

I know it has been mentioned before, but just as in homes, the main purpose of a hood fan is to remove moisture that can cause problems with structure.

At one time I was keen on the thought of just using my ceiling fan, but after more thought, would definitely always use a hood fan, as it is directly over the stove, and is easier to clean.

Hey Jim, why not mention what you do for a living?

Methinks most everyone knows anyway, but I do custom renovations and home building.

I have pondered the question of a range hood fan or not myself. Often we just use the max fan when using the stove but the issue of moisture rising up into the Wood work above if there were no range hood in place is a good point . I guess if you were a very occasional user of the stove inside them it might be ok.

Hey Dave, it looks like I can no longer turn my nose up at folks from St Albert, as you guys have bumped Calgary from the #1 city in Canada to live. I now must bow to you.

I used to repair leaky condos on the wet coast so I'm particularily fond of fg trailers and good ventilation.
