Love the vent - So is there a fan or anything in there? Or does it work like a funnel and vent through the roof? What did you attach the old light with? Appears to be some kind of grill in there. Thanks!!

The fan is far away, but as long as the pipe is sealed, it's pulling the same amount of air as it would if it were right at the stove. We have a grease catcher filter at the stove as well. No light.

oof: it's a hodge-podge of stuff. The metallic stuff you see is standard Home Depot stove-pipe stuff. The bracket sticking out from the wall is also standard Home Depot bendable bracket material. The white bit is something I picked up at a Habitat Re:Store, most likely a old light fixture. The fan is a new bathroom fan with a 1950s style grill.

Was the vent hood custom? Or is there a vendor who builds these hoods? - I have a 20" garage apt. kitchen stove and need a vent hood. All the hoods I've found online are at least 30"--10" larger than the stove itself. The house I live in was build in 1914 so the apt. is decorated cottage style. Please let me know if you have any ideas?

I picked up that white shroud part first, and then found pipe and a fan that fit the pipe.

Me three. Love that range hood. I've been looking at DIY range hood. I think standard galvanized round duct, an inline duct fan, and of coarse the range hood itself, would work. Just make sure you have a filter installed before the fan, otherwise that will get all gunked up with grease. I'm going to give it a try. Great idea.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Kitchen of the Week: Quirky Texas Remodel
During demolition, the contractor discovered the original flue from when the kitchen was located on the back porch. "It was hidden behind drywall in the back of a closet," says Mace. "It was a pleasant surprise. This flue ties the kitchen to the house's history, and also gives us a great place to hang our pots and pans." It's clear Mace wanted a playful sensibility to live in every nook and cranny of this kitchen. A vintage fan collection, a dustpan made out of a license plate, and a George Nelson Ball Clock are only a taste of the quirky style that Mace infused into the space.
Samantha Schoech added this to 12 Inspiring Real-Life Vintage Kitchens
This is a remodeled new kitchen, but the fun embrace of the chaotic is a great lesson for older kitchens too. The opposite of going all white and uncluttered is to let it all hang out. You just know the person who cooks here is fun to be around.
