    Good tips Robert. We did a kitchen install a while back, everything was on site and we proceded to install. Found out one of the base cabinets was 6 inches too narrow. We ended up making a narrow cabinet to store cutting boards and incorporated a slide out teatowel holder. If we had drawn out the cabinets on the floor, like your tips suggest, we would have found out prior to install that our chap who signed off on the cabinets did not double check the dimensions shipped. Worked out ok though.

    Love the idea of drawing the cabinets on the floor. This is why I read so much. The obvious tends to elude me and this is perfect!
