I need to install a simple under the cabinet range hood with ventilation to the outside. Of course, there is a stud blocking the easy horizontal path to the adjacent exterior wall. I suppose I could go straight up out the roof. But I am not doing that myself. My questions are:
- Is there such thing as a standard adapters suited to solve this problem? The stud is offset about 2" from where the center of the centered vent would be if there were no stud.
- Is there such thing as a range hood designed with this scenario in mind? i.e. one with an offset vent.
Surprisingly haven't been able to find answers to those questions googling. Only suggestion I've seen is to make a detailed drawing of what you want and take it to a sheet metal shop. I don't trust myself to generate a good enough drawing.
Other option is to move the stud. I think I know how to do that, but it would be nice if that mess could be avoided.
