What is the height of the hood above the stove?

If I remember correctly this hood is about 30" above the cooktop.

As a general rule of thumb appliance manufacturers will specify the required clearances for hoods and ventilation, so if you go to their website you should be able to find that information for any unit you are interested in. Your local building inspector will require that you comply with these specifications.

The above situation was carefully designed to comply with building codes...although it's hard to see in the picture, the window behind the cooktop is boxed out to provide the correct minimum distance to flammable surfaces and is also a fixed unit with no interior mullions; the side 'casing' is actually ceramic tile; and the wood trim behind the hood is surfaced in stainless steel. This is a more complex installation than it appears.

This is exactly what I wanted my architect to design. Are all state building codes the same and where do we find what the code is? Thank you.

Most states follow the International Code Council (ICC) regulations with specific amendments made by individual states; most are updated every few years. If you are working with an architect they will know the requirements.
