Cabinet trim gaps


So, my truss uplift got worse this year. Decided to do some research. Looks like me improving my attic intake ventilation this summer improved my ventillation but also increased the trust uplift. Basically, I had maximum ridge vent exhaust coupled with essentially no intake flow. Found a good short write-up explaining it and another example of how to hide it. Can't really "fix" it.

run a screw up from inside the cabinet into the ceiling if you can find the framing or ceiling truss.... this is the best way to keep the cabinet from moving... especially if you have a soffit above the wall cabinets. I can't really tell from the pictures.

if you screw the cabinet into the truss, the power of the up lift will pull on the weakest part, which may be the top rail of your cabinet. Better to install a moulding to the gap and attach it only to the truss so it can ride up and down without revealing the gap or damaging the cabinet
