Thanks for the comment/testimony. There are several kitchen cabinet places around here, but most seem to want to deal with custom or high end mansions (you know, with 15' ceilings and fancy stuff everywhere). Our house is 1960's, with 8' ceilings and in the kitchen, there's a 15" soffit due to an a/c installation (to make room for ducts). <sigh> Our needs are simple.
I will look around some more. Was that respectible cabinet dealer a national type? Would they have stores/branches in Florida?
