Your diagram is what I’m intending. The headers on the cut joist will be doubled and attached to the uncut joists on either side. I would add additional blocking to the left and right of the circle on your diagram (parallel to the uncut joists but in closer to the circle …. duct…) These additional blocking pieces would be part of the support system for the range hood and might add some stiffness assuming I get them in there nice and tight.

I already have lots of patching holes to do (sparky just finished today) and the whole room will get painted so painting the ceiling is just another step at this point. I might get done by Christmas at this rate. :)

And it’s gyprock with a hard plaster skim coat. So there’s no carefully prying it out. It’ll need patching. :)
