Step 2: Initial Framing

Picture of Initial Framing

The vent hood is quite heavy, to say the least. Having it hang on drywall required the use of some hefty toggle bolts since the moment arm of the hood was going to be so far from the wall. Following the toggle bolts, I secured the remainder of the frame into each necessary arm with several 3" screws. Before putting the vent hood up, I was tempted to try and do a pull-up on the frame--that's how secure I wanted it to be.
