kitchen remodel order
I like to mount the uppers first so I don't have to work over the base cabinets---but that is not a 'must do'
First step is to establish the high point in the floor----using the longest level you have--determine the high spot---mark a line on the wall 34 1/2" above that spot--(check the height of your base cabinets in case your cabinets are not 34 1/2")
Snap a level line using that mark----this is what you will use to level the cabinets---start in a corner--lazy Suzann if you have one---
Start champing the face frames together and pre drilling and screwing the cabinets together---the doors must be removed so be careful not to mix them up----shim the bottoms and screw the backs to the wall using your snapped line---when you get to the dishwasher hole----
DW is 24" wide opening----if you are smart you will cut two 24" wide spacer sticks---add a longer stick on top of that---then clamp the spacer to the cabinets----it's a common error to have that opening shift and ruin your installation,
Check your walls for plumb before you start----coping the cabinets or a filler might be needed to keep the cabinets level against a crooked wall.
