More Cabinets and the Kitchen Sink (michael)
More cabinets and the kitchen sink I set the sink base but something was wrong. The cabinet looked like it was listing. I checked the measurement to the ceiling at each end of the base and sure enough, the floor is built at a slant. About a 1/4 inch in 1.5 feet. The sink base is a 1/2 inch out of plumb. So I cut and placed a 1/2 inch shim under the forward edge of the cabinet and screwed it to the floor and then to the wall. A straight edge continued the line along the wall to the corner and side wall. I used 2x4's screwed to the wall for the counter support. Then I attached the 18 inch base, shimmed, to the sink base in an island configuration. Set the counter tops and cut in the sink. The 18 inch draw base fit on the opposite wall, add a counter top and were done. Well, I still have to build the cabinet for the oven. I'll do that soon.
All the Best, Michael & Christi See our other Blog;http://michaelhargisshow.blogspot.com/
