Planning ahead because I'm not 100% sure on how to tackle this ... 

Dimensions... 
The step up is about 19" deep, with siding in place probably end up around 18-18 1/4

The step up is about 1 1/4" high

Should I shorten the depth of the cabinets to match the step up ... So 18" deep cabinets? 


Assumptions:
I just factor the step up into the toekick height
There's some type of lifters for cabinets I would need to install on the front insides to keep them from rocking


Thoughts?? 

Thanks guys!

1) Well, the depth of your cabinets really depends on its intended use.  

If you want full depth cabinets, it would be pretty simple to cut the bases to fit. Especially if building separate bases like I did on the miter station. I certainly don't see this being a show stopper for you, just a minor challenge to overcome!

2) thanks Kev! I will take a stab at building the separate base and stacking on individual cabinet sections after that.

3) That's probably the way I'd do it..  Build the bases and get them level.  From there, you can build whatever you want on top of them..

Give a shout if you're struggling, I'm always happy to help.

4) I’m with Kev, build it to the depth you want and adjust the sides and toe kick to account for the unevenness, including the height of the countertop as you will be standing on the lower section.
