I've been trying to find someone to consult with about this for several months now. Everyone I contact wants to do a major remodel. I just need advice and maybe a small project. I'd look for a handyman, but the situation calls for someone with specific expertise in older houses as I haven't quite run across a similar situation.
Here's the spec I've been sending around:
I have a tiled range area in my 1925 era house. The tile extends into a built-in hood in which there are 2 round holes. I assume these are for exhaust fans of some sort, but they are now just holes in the wall. I want to make the hood functional. Who do I call? I don't need a range hood as such as this function is built-in. Do I need an insert? Just a fan? I can't find a similar set up after some serious research. Perhaps I don't have the correct terminology?
And here is the diagram:
