Cook Stove Exhaust Hood Location

Hi all, Typically how high up from the top of the cook stove does the exhaust hood go? This is a remodel of my 2nd floor for an apartment for my brother. As always, thanks in advance for you help. Roger

Most common installations require a distance of 30"-36" between the bottom of the hood and the top of the cook top. This will provide the best capture area.

Mine is at 29" from the stove top but works perfectly for me.

One more question - Does anyone know if it's permissible if the kitchen stove exhaust can be vented outside using the same vent as the bathroom? My gut tells me no but I figured I'd ask anyway. Thanks again. Roger
