For the upper cabinets, connect the wall units together, and draw a line 54" from the floor to mark the bottom of the wall unit. And be sure to mark the stud as well.
Use the Gil-Lift to raise the top cabinets into place.
Note: A Gil-Lift or similar lift is available at most rental centers for approximately $40 a day.
To start the installation of the base cabinets, draw the center line of the window and measure away from that line half the width of the sink base. This will be the right edge of the first cabinet.
Find the highest point to install the first cabinet, and shim the rest of the cabinets up to that height as you go. Once you make sure the unit is level from front to back as well as side to side, screw the cabinet into the wall.
Before attaching the next cabinet, screw the face frames together, and then attach those cabinets to the wall as well.
