Getting a big cabinet into a house?
Steve Clardy posted his cabs here so I hope this thread is okay here. If not, I imagine it would go over into the Carpentry and Construction forum. Sorry.
I'm making a set of cabinets that will have two, lower, corner cabs with those two-shelf lazy-susan things in them, one on either side of the sink base. The finished cabinet will be 35" x 35" (and 35" high). There is a 90 degree corner on the inside (kitchen area), as opposed to a 45 like in Steve's cab pics. ( BTW, I am in no way comparing my cabs to Steve's ).
So, there is an 11" x 11" notch out of the square footprint of the 35" x 35" cabinet. 24" for the cabinet depth and 11" for the return in the other direction. Am I clear enough? You cabinet folks should be able to decipher my poor descriptions.
This kitchen remodel is a pretty big job for me and I've been dreaming (nightmares?) about it. One night it hit me, am I going to be able to get the corner cabs into the house? A 36" door opening only yields about 34 3/4", with the door off. Will this cabinet be able to fit through the front door, perhaps by turning it "around" the corner, if you get my meaning? How do you folks get your big cabinets, with the smallest dimension of >34 1/2", into the house?
Thanks very much for any insight and advice you can provide.
My diet is working good. I'm down to needing just one chair now.
