That is a commercial gas range there...

I recall seeing this in JLC & going that's not right, but I haven't had the time to find the code that applies. I am pretty sure it is supposed to be 4 to 10 feet away from any opening. As the fixed sash window does not open - they are fine there - the question then becomes - how about the door.

Here in PDX, OR it's 3' away from a non-powered inlet (IE openable window) or 10' away from a powered inlet (IE makeup air fan.)

Here's the key to passing inspection in my jurisdicition:
"He shoehorns a fixed-sash window into the space above the range hood"
Note this right here /\ that little hyphonated word makes all the differance in the world!!! :thumbup: As in whether or not you pass inspection.:party:

PS Don't know why in the article they think this is a big deal, it's been going on around here since the 1900's- look at any plans for an arts and crafts (read Bungalow) house and chances are you'll see this window configuration- usually with leaded and/or stained glass.
