Stone Hoods - Who's got them?
Okay, I've always loved the country cottage look of a stone hood, but thought they were WAY out of my price range. Doing some research this month has led me to Architectual Supply Inc. online. They have custom stone hoods for the same price I was about to pay for a custom wood hood from Stanisci that would have to be finished to match my cabinetry. I'm all giddy, but full of questions concerning this.
Not many people do stone - maybe it's because they, too, thought the price was over $10,000 a hood. Is there anything special I need to be aware of? Anyone with a stone hood, can you give any tips, words of advice, warnings?
My kitchen will be primarily DIY. My husband and a local handyman will be doing the cabinet installation. I'm nervous about them hanging such a heavy object. How do these things mount anyway?
I'd appreciate any words of advice or wisdom ya'll can pass on! Thanks.
