The hood is installed!
I was in such a hurry to take the first picture, I didn't clean up first. Here's a nice shiny picture:
Much less visible, but still important, we have an outlet inside the island - which will make using the cooktop that much easier. No more extension cord for us! (We only needed it when turning the stove on, to make the spark to ignite the gas, so it wasn't in the way all the time.)
And we have a new "charging station" (aka outlet) inside on the back door, on the top shelf of the pantry. I'm already using it to charge my phone!
Not everything went smoothly, though. We discovered the fan casing inside the microwave is cracked, so we need to get a new one. Not a new microwave, just the part. See what I mean?
It's inside a panel - so we never would have known! Though the electrician said it would rattle. He took it apart to switch the fan around so it would exhaust from the front, since we're mounting it up under the cabinet.
