Amycat,
Sometimes its possible to find great pricing on cabinets that have been mis-ordered or from a client having a change of heart.
Found a complete kitchen for my sister last year that were still in their boxes and being sold at less than half the retail due to a divorce.
It may be rare to find something that fits your taste but if the savings are substantial its worth taking a look.
I received the lay out ahead of time and fit it into a workable lay out for my project.


I started looking around for another deal today for another relative and came across a couple of complete kitchens that are new.

This one is quite a drive for me but have your designer see if these will lay out so they can work for you:http://westernmass.craigslist.org/fod/5390632689.html

I prefer plywood cabinet boxes.
Very interesting. I still remember "my father's particle board" from my childhood. That stuff turned to mush if it got wet.

I spoke with a contractor today, someone with a good reputation but who is not involved with this project. He said JSI's plywood comes from China, pre-cut, shipped flat. He described it as not the best quality. He then said this:

"Furniture board can be just as good if not better than plywood. It depends on the product. But if you're going to be in the house for as long as you say you will, quality of finish is also important. I put JSI in my rental properties. Repaint them every time a tenant moves out. But I put Diamond cabinets [a Masterbrand company, as is Kemper] in my own kitchen. They are seventeen years old and still look great."

Re: Cabinetry Recommendations


Update:

We decided to get the Kemper Echo cabinet with partial overlay doors. The price we were first quoted by the kitchen designer already included the cost of the upgrade to drawers with solid wood sides and undermount slides, as well as pullout shelves in the bottom of the island. In the end the Kemper cabinets were only about $1300 more than the JSI, and the impression I got from the contractor was that he thought Kemper would be more likely to last for 20+ years (when we plan to retire and sell the house).

JSI is made with Chinese plywood, and ships to the customer either as ready-to-assemble or assembled. The contractor was always of the opinion that the plywood from China was likely to be less durable than the furniture board in the Kemper products.

I should mention that changing the style of the door brought the price down by $2,000.

The countertops will be "fantasy brown" granite for $3300.
