I am in a suburb of New York City - and the prices reflect that.
We sold our old kitchen on Craig’s List for $1,500.

The space is different than the original kitchen. Behind the original was a small powder room and tiny laundry room. Each had a window in it. First we did a small addition on the other side of the house for a powder room and big laundry room, then we knocked down the wall and opened up the space. We actually had to move both windows several inches - annoying but well worth it to achieve the symmetry needed.

My GC built the hood. He carved it with wood, covered it with masonite, then sheetrock. Then it was painted, plastered & glazed. The mouldings were all ordered with the cabinetry so it matched. Obviously the guts of the vent cost $, but the hood itself cost me a days labor plus materials, paint, etc.
