Uncrated and full of majesty, our exhaust hood is now hanging from the rafters. In a way, it’s like buying tires, or maybe fixing your roof: it costs a lot more than you feel it should, and in the end, you only have something that you need, as opposed to something fun. That said, I am at heart a kitchen guy, so to have a shiny new piece of kitchen equipment that’s top of the line (front and rear makeup air plenums! How sexy is that?!) still makes me happy. Happier than I would be after buying tires or fixing the roof, anyway.
