Question on hanging kitchen wall cabinets


I'm in the process of remodeling the kitchen and have a question about how best to hang the wall cabinets.

All of the cabinets are being moved from their original positions which were along two interior 2x4 16" OC studded walls (which have been demo'd to create an open kitchen.)

The house has 2x6 exterior walls with 24" OC studs and the cabinets will go onto that wall. Two of the cabinets are 30" and 36" wide, and they have to be arranged on the wall such that there is only one stud behind these two cabinet to screw into.

How do I handle this? Is screwing the cabinets into only one stud (at the top and bottom of the cabinet) sufficient? Is screwing these cabinets into the sides of the adjacent cabinets going to provide enough support?

Or do I just install a couple of more 2x6 studs into the exterior wall where needed to provide supports? There is no drywall up on the walls now so I can do this without a problem.

Thanks, and any other suggestions/recommendations are welcome.

Yup. That's exactly what you should do. With your wall opened up you have the chance to place horizontal blocking everywhere you need to.

Or, preferrably, exactly where the screws would go!
