calling all Conestoga experts!

I mean Conestoga DIY'ers!

As a daily lurker, I really appreicate this site and all the great support!

After months of cabinet searching (already worried about how my OCD personality will handle finding the perfect countertop slabs) we are almost 100% positive on ordering Conestoga inset shaker style cabinets painted white. Since we have almost 30 cabinets to build, this would become our summer project before a fall kitchen reno.

A few questions for those out there:
1. DH has background in engineering and we both are handy (built countless IKEA items over the years). Would we be over our heads assembling inset RTA cabinets?
2. With Conestoga's Advantage line, should we order flush ends for all upper and base cabinets or only those that will require exposed ends?

Any photos of finished Conestoga kitchens would be great!

I'm sorry I missed this thread.
I can assemble an upper cabinet in less than 10 minutes and a base usually in about 30. I use drawer bases, so the glides take a bit longer.

I strongly suggest you check out the videos at The Cabinet I'm also willing to help. I love these cabinets.

I'd personally would only order the finished/flush ends on the exposed ones.

You also might want to shop Conestoga prices, too, because I've found definite differences for the same cabinets.
