The
Cabinets are stock sizes ordered from Stock Cabinet Express. The style is Uptown White
Grade? I couldn't tell you.

Do I like them as far as quality? I think for the price point, they are fine, what I expected. Although I didn't know this when ordering, the manufacturer is Forevermark.  The same cabinets are available from other suppliers. There have been some issues, mostly warping of plywood parts and clips not aligning. The panels are held together with clips. I've had to move some to get them to align. Although the manufacturer says glue isn't necessary, I glued them. They are painted birch, sides are 1/2" ply. Face Frames, door and drawer frames are solid birch. Drawer and door panels are MDF. But once assembled, they come together fine. Some took a little manipulating. I built our last kitchen at the old house which was a good bit smaller using maple and birch ply. It cost me less to buy these cabinets than it did do build the last set. This was just a hair over $7,000. These came unassembled in flat boxes. Assembled is an option. The oven cabinet front comes with generic openings. I modified it to fit this oven.

I've seen the same brand in some of the homes I have inspected and can tell you that the stained cabinets appear to be better quality than these painted ones.

I'm doing all the work myself. It's a sickness. 

Haven't installed a floor yet. We're considering several options and probably won't pick the floor till we have the countertop in. Options are vinyl plank, pre-finished hardwood (probably natural oak) or tile. I'm really tired of laying tile though and it it price prohibitive. The countertop will probably be quartzite unless we fall in love with a granite at a reasonable price. Right now, the countertop is 3/4" Melamine in order to have a working kitchen during the build.

The cabinets are on the subfloor. You can't put cabinets on a floating floor, particularly vinyl plank. The flooring will buttt up to the cabinets with a toe-kick over it.

Laugh   Yeah, it is.  I swore I'd never build another kitchen after doing one for myself and one for money later... but I'm gonna do it again because I can't find what I want (Craftsman).

Thank you for the reply. The kitchen will be my last room I do so it will be some time yet but just watching others go through this process now and then.

I should mention, the $7000 included 2 roll out trays on most of the base cupboards, roll out garbage bins, soft closing glides and hinges some glass doors, toe kicks and, molding (which I won't be using) ad shipping. I've priced the slides alone from various suppliers and they run $42 a set.

Total.. 26 cabinets including the tall pantry cabinet and tall oven cabinet. The pantry cabinet was $633 and the Oven Cabinet was $836.

If I subtract those two cabinets, the cost per cabinet averaged $230. That includes the corner lazy Susan cabinet,
