Installed MaxxAir Fan in kitchen ceiling

The ceiling cut out was the same as the one I did last April for the vent I installed in the bedroom. I went with the MaxxAir this time because it was basically the same price as the Fantastic Fan by the time the cover was included.
I think this may be a little better unit than the Fantastic Fan, but time will tell. It looks a little "beefier" and I like the integrated rain cover. It also has two lift arm instead of just one and the fan has 10 speeds. Installation was faster and easier, the plastic was thicker and the trim shroud was deeper. Anyhow, this is the finished product.

Nice job, I've got that fan on my wish list. Did you need to run power to it?

No, the framing was already there as was the electricity. I don't think I double posted but I've been punching so many holes in my roof lately, who knows .

Nice. I just changed my wimpy bath vent fan with a Fantastic Fan and cover. Love the air it moves.

Do you have any photos or instructions from doing the ceiling cut out? It sounds like you cut into your roof and not replaced an existing fixture is that right?

I want to do this as well for a skylight or additional fan.

Thanks
