But doesn't the vented backsplash require additional depth for duct work behind the stove? That, or duct work inside the wall?
Ours will be vented from the top, but I can tell ya it's going to cost a heck of a lot more than $600 bucks to exhaust this bad-boy! Just the hood alone costs more than that (like nearly 3x more). I'll probably hire a mechanical to do that work. There's some tricky duct work, a roof curb and a roof penetration required...and I do not do roofing (I just refuse to). Plus, there will be some custom stainless work inside too and I don't have a brake.
I used to say I'd never do drywall work (again) too, but here I am...doing drywall work. Many moons ago when I was still building houses I swore I'd never do drywall work again. I talked myself into it this time just because I love the framing work and the drywall isn't enough to warrant hiring someone to do it. Just two new walls and some knee-wall framing at the island.
except that he'll use a whole gallon or two of mud, and I'm the finisher/sander/painter....

Oh my gosh!
I would LOVE to work on your house. I recall you saying that the kitchen was the last remaining thing that needed to be done (?).
My luggage would be hysterical so, I'm going to assume you have tools. Ones that haven't been used in the basement?
