I'm mulling over putting a vent hood into my basement laundry room, I just want to make sure it's worth the trouble. The laundry room has 36" of counter space, a commercial refrigerator, a large tub sink, and storage for all the brew-toys. So a vent hood would be stellar so I could brew right in the room.
So here's the the questions I'd like to run past the community to give me some more perspective, ideas, or just stop me from doing something stupid.
1.) There is already a dryer vent that exits the house in this room. The path between where the hood would go and where the exhaust currently is would be perpendicular across all of the joists, not ideal. I am going to put a drop ceiling in so I may be able to traverse the distance between the joists and the drop ceiling. See anything wrong here?
2.) I'd like to see some folks' hoods if they'd be willing to post links or pictures of their setups or any slick ideas.
3.) Does anyone have any other creative ideas or alternatives to a vent hood?
