the latest thing im trying to get my head around in the kitchen is the extractor ducting as i don't want to go use the recirculating mode. The issue I have is that im cramped for space in the ceiling void due to the bathroom pipes and can't come straight across the top of the cabinets as there's a boiler flue in the corner of the room at the external wall.
My latest idea is that since the units will be fitted to battens to bring them out enough to go around the boiler, can i bring them out far enough so that i can fit the extractor duct next to/slightly underneath the flue (ill deal with the workaround for the 300mm min distance from the boiler flue afterwards)? this might mean bringing them out by close to 10cm. The base units are also being done in the same way to make space for the central heating pipes and ive had to order deeper worktops. I realise if the wall units are brought out by too much they'll be encroaching on my workspace but technically is this feasible and is it a stupid idea?

also, this may mean fitting the unit to go round the boiler slightly lower than before (the boiler is quite high at about 160mm so could be a good thing). The only issue would be that the boiler will stick out at the top, i want to get a soffit/piece of fascia across of the units anyway but by dropping the units lower this will be a much thicker piece and im not sure if it will look okay or a bit odd?
