Re: Install base cabinets on uneven wall


Just ask yourself if I am fixing it or if I am covering it up. If you are covering it up you are only creating other issues down the road for yourself or others. You should always resolve the issue and in this case it's an easy fix.

Re: Install base cabinets on uneven wall


I agree, no problem......I'm just not sure it's within my competencies
When you look at the pictures, is opening 2 cavities (one each side) enough to fix that issue?
Or it will have to be fixed on a larger span (like 2 cavities each side)?

Re: Install base cabinets on uneven wall


I would open it up to the studs on either side of the issue. If you don't feel you are competent to complete you should seek professional assistance or go another route such as shimming and trim. My advice is purely based on the best practice and result. I wouldn't call it hackery if a home owner did it, but I would if a professional suggested it as a worthy fix and got paid to do it in their clients home, especially when they spend 10's of thousands of dollars on a remodel.

Re: Install base cabinets on uneven wall


Can't really tell how much needs to be removed from pictures --- just keep going until your straight edge says its flat. If you have not done much drywall, the risk is that the seams in your joints will be visible. (Maybe Google butt-boards) There has been discussion that only one stud needs to be planed down, maybe its that simple --- maybe its not. (To me, photo looks more like a step than a bump.) But if your wall is 16 feet long (or less) that's only two sheets wide, and if you end up needing to take it all down you will be able to use the tapered ends of the drywall at the butt joints.
