We did, Lucinda, but we did things a little differently.  Bottom cabinets 
were set in place, but not firmly attached, so I had DH unpack the 
dishwasher and put it in the hole.  When installers arrived in the morning, 
I pointed out that a drawer wouldn't open because of the dishwasher and the 
dishwasher front couldn't be opened past knobs.  They put spacers in to 
take care of those things. I had them hang the upper doors a little low so 
we could open from the bottoms of the doors (no need for knobs, and they 
can break the bank). I decided the cupboards over the stove were so high a 
hood would look ridiculous. We took the unpackaged hood back to HD and 
bought an over-the-stove microwave/hood combination.  That's DH's favorite 
part of the remodel now.  Margaret L
