First we ordered THIS Broan range hood, and it was everything we wanted and more! I loved that it has led lights, and the buttons that are easy to use. One big thing for me was the option to be non ducted!

First, figure out what size you want your range hood to be. Then measure and cut accordingly. We knew what size we wanted based off the Broan Cortero Range Hood we had ordered, so it was time to get to work.

You can see we just made a box starting out to go over the range hood, now we will build on from there. 

Next we started to build the back of the hood, we new the size that would work for our kitchen and went from there.

It was time to add on all the sides and the top, we added wood glue along with the screws along the way to make it stronger.

Time to cut the plywood as the exterior so we can cover it up with the shiplap.

We used brad nails to attach it, and along the way we made sure the Broan Hood Range still fit perfectly and was easy to take out.
