Does anyone know if a window is required in kitchens by code? Or is exhaust hood ventilation fine?
Thank you in advance for your feedback!
window no. Ventilation yes. Contact your city planning dept.
I know of lots of houses where there is no window in the kitchen. Sam is right, check with your city.
I think it varies by city or county

I'll check with the city - I'm in San Francisco and hopefully they don't have a crazy code in place.
There are lots of row houses in parts of San Francisco where you have limited opportunity to have windows except in the front or back of the house. Hope they have a reasonable code.
I am not city planning. You have my permission....
