Kitchen Cabinets Being Installed In A Shipping Container Home

This style of installation is fairly common even here in the Philippines with the front panel being a complete unit. In the UK and probably most of Europe though we generally go for carcass construction which makes individual cabinets that are bolted together to form up the kitchen. Generally more expensive than the method in the video but also they do come raised off the ground which can be helpful for things like cleaning or avoiding damage during floods. A blown out plinth is cheap to replace but looking at either design as the one in the video is using treated wood it would probably hold up well in a minor flood. When I talk about flooding not talking about the burst banks of the Nile for example but things like burst pipes in cold spells when your out.

We finally got the 1800ft of  PVC pipe installed after Ikea coming through with the missing parts to the kitchen cabinets. Butchers block oiled, faucet in and the plumber installed the rest.
