I've never heard of Shennandoah but I would not use Merlat in my dog house.
The one's I've seen are cheap partical board.

What's the plan, is this a rental of a house your going to be staying in?
If your staying then hold off off and buy better cabinets.
A whole lot cheaper to only have to buy them one time.

as elaine said the rta cabinets are much cheaper. at least 50 to 60 percent of what particle board cabinets would cost you and they are all wood and plywood.

Merillat and Shennadoah are very similar semi custom cabinet lines and if you're going to go that route, you should also consider Kraftmaid. However, unless you are looking for a lot of custom sizes it may not be necessary to pay the premium to buy these cabinet lines. You can buy all plywood stock kitchen cabinets online either assembled or ready to assemble for a 20-50% savings:thumbup:. I'd do my homework carefully before making a decision.
