This bit of information helps. With a second story above, obviously the
duct for the vent cannot simply run up through the ceiling and out the
roof. With a low ceiling in the kitchen, although the simplicity of
running a duct in false beam is appealing, the appearance probably would
not be. The ease and cost of installation is going to be highly dependent
on whether the ceiling/floor joists above run parallel or perpendicular
going to the outside wall where the outside vent would be placed. Being
able to run a duct between two joists where there would be few or no
obstructions would not be that difficult to do.
I'm in Apache Junction... The housing market is insane here! We now have
a house in escrow after a long and difficult search.
