What do you mean that you've got your drawers bunched up?

Obviously a "husband" installation and not a "professional" installation.

Don't you believe it, I worked as a kitchen fitter for 20 odd years and I've seen some really stupid things done like one job where they tiled the floor after the kitchen was installed so you couldn't remove the dishwasher or wash machine, or when a fitter fitted a sink into the work top the wrong way round so the tap was at the front, the worst thing about it was they told the client it was so they didn't have to reach over to turn on the taps, worse still the client accepted it and signed off the job, she eventually phoned the office to say that she couldn't use it like that as she being a big girl kept burning herself on the hot tap and had to tie a pillow to the tap, the same fitters were working on another job and it was the day of the ascot races, the owner came in and asked the fitter if he could remove a lump sticking out of the wall the fitter climbed up a ladder with his hammer and chisel, (I should point out this was a second floor flat also the owner was dressed for Ascot in tails ) the fitter hit the lump and knocked the end off what turned out to be a lead water main that had been blocked off, the water was gushing out he shouted for his mate to shut the main tap whilst he had his finger pushed into the pipe to slow the flow, his mate broke the top off the stop tap & ran to the street to shut the main into the building but broke that one too, so had to call the utilities, so the chap up the ladder decided to try and close the pipe by hammering the end over the result was that the first blow closed it part way but concentrated the jet strait at the owner, all this was witnessed by a electrician who was up a ladder in another part of the room & couldn't control himself any longer and left the job to come to where I was working, incidentally putting right another of their jobs, when sparky told us the story and he said on his way down from the flat he looked through the letterbox of the flat directly below he could see the ceiling bowing under the weight of water, because of all the mistakes this team had made when we went back to the office I asked why were they still working for the company and was told that they had improved so they were giving them a chance, it was at this point the phone rang and we could hear a raised voice and the manager turning white so we left quietly. so it's not just DIYers.

The dish-washer was (& still is) "floored-in" in the house I'm currently living in. Had to unfasten the countertop & lift it a couple inches in order to get the old one out & install the new one.

I have a saws-all and long "wrecker" blades for cutting dishwashers out of the holes they were "floored" into! Someone will order up a new floor and they put it in right on top of the old floor. If the home owner is lucky, the two floors only add up to less than half an inch and so the hole height might be just under 34". They can buy any Whirlpool dishwasher and it can be lowered to that height just fine. But if it is less than 33 1/2" then they have to buy an ADA compliant machine that will fit into a 32" high hole. Sucks for the customer when they spend 20-30Gs on matching appliances!

Things are a bit of a squeeze in here, so when looking for anything, just draw on one thing at a time.

Could you run out and get my router and a 1/2" cutter? I've got to notch these drawers just a little.
