Breathe Easy

Cooking odors can quickly permeate a studio. I'd long lamented that my kitchen cabinetry afforded no space for a range hood, but then a story I wrote on chefs' gardens got me thinking outside the box, so to speak. I purchased a greenhouse fan, which snugly fits into the kitchen window above my air conditioner. A piece of ¼-inch clear Plexiglas fills the gap to the left, and both it and the fan are held in place using hardware attached to preexisting holes in the window frame. The only real downside is having to disassemble the whole contraption for cleaning.
