How to handle an exposed kitchen sink vent line after the removal of the soffit.

Jake-

My husband & I are DIYers. We bought a 70's ranch and have gutted the kitchen, including removing the old soffits. Our new cabinets are 30" and we wanted the top open for decor and lighting, but ran into a kitchen sink vent pipe that was hidden in the soffit.

How do I install new cabinets with old soffits that don’t fit correctly?

Hi Jake,

I have no idea about reno and stuff but we bought and moved in a 18 year old house two months ago. At first I thought we were just going to take out carpet and put in laminate. Anyway one thing leads to another... I went to an auction and bought a 36" kitchen cabinets only to find out the top cabinets are too tall.
