    Over the weekend and (cough called in sick cough) today I installed a range hood and vented this one outside. The old one did not vent out.
    Had to go through the upper cupboard then through the wall into the stairwell then out. Could not go up through the ceiling as there was a joist in the way and I did not want to muck with it.
    Hope to have the duct work boxed in over the next month, as next couple of weekends are booked then a couple of weeks down east on vacation.

    This one has a nice quiet 0.8 sones rating.

    The vent went in on the weekend.

    That looks like a project that has as much work to cover everything as there is in the venting.

    Looks like it has turned into a pretty good sized project to me.

    I’d say it just kept growing as well! Was there not an offset for the ductwork that would have gotten you around the joist above?

    If there was, I did not see one at my local HD or LOWES.

    Start with something like this:

    http://m.lowes.com/pd/Broan-Rectangle-to-Round-Transition/3373034

    Then add this guy:

    http://m.lowes.com/pd/IMPERIAL-8-in-x-8-in-Galvanized-Steel-Round-Duct-Elbow/3306496

    The second fitting can be adjusted to multiple angles to help you get around the joist in question.

    I think at this point @58chev is past changing his plan to going up around the joist. Not much in changing how everything is done now!

    Agreed, unless it’s a two story.
    That’s how mine’s done, but for no apparent reason. There’s a zigzag up in the attic like they just guessed where the roof penetration would go. I thought maybe the stove had been moved, but that would have put it in another room.

    @jponto07,
    That would have been good but the wife did not want to much of the storage in the cupboard. That’s why the 3″x10″ duct, she thought it would have been better.

    @jstare,
    YEP.. Whats done is done. Maybe in the next 15 years I’ll run it through the ceiling.

    For sure. I wouldn’t move it at this point either.

    If it works and everyone is happy good job. At least now the fan exhausts to the outside.

    I wish I could vent mine outside. I hate the microwave vent thing that we have now. All it does is make a bunch of noise. Nice job.

    Isn’t that the truth. Are there retrofit kits for existing microwaves that would change them to a exterior exhausting unit?

    I don’t use mine because the low speed doesn’t do anything and high speed is so dang loud.

    Why didn’t you go through the attic?

    It seems like there was a joist above he was trying to avoid and couldn’t find the right ductwork pieces to go around it. A little drywall work to cover it up and it should be all better.

    what I find most interesting is that he has been in that house for EONS and they have always had the fan that doesn’t vent outside and why now change?

    I did our range hood on too hot of day and it turned a non-fun job into a miserable job as I went up through the attic and through the roof, would have been nice if I could have gone through the wall.
