To install the base cabinet, determine the high point of the wall.
Set the cabinets in place and level them front to back, shimming them to make sure they are even.
Secure the cabinets to the wall with 3" cabinet screws.
Get a professional to do the countertops. The cutouts for the sink are made at the shop since the edges will be polished -- they will show with the undermount sink.
Note: Honed granite means it isn't polished -- and thus, it doesn't shine. And believe it or not, it's a bit more expensive.
Use a circular saw with a diamond blade to make the cutout for the drop-in cook top.
Add a bead of silicone to secure the granite in place.
