Questions About Cabinets

Whose job is it to measure for a kitchen remodel?

The design plan of my new kitchen cabinets said the end of the cabinets would terminate with inches of wall space showing. When the cabinets were installed there was a whole foot of wall space. When I questioned my contractor, he said it's not his job to measure - it's my job. Is this true?

How can I install a base cabinet on a sloped floor?

I'm trying to install some new base cabinets in our kitchen. We have removed the old ones and discovered that the kitchen floor slopes towards the center of the room, which means that these new cabinets will be sloped too. How should I deal with this? If we prop up the cabinet, then the cabinets will not be resting on the floor and you'll see a gap. If I install them on the floor, then the counterops will not be level. Any ideas?

Is the floor of my cabinet beyond repair?

A leak started a few days ago and I placed a basin underneath to catch the water.

Does the entire base need to be replaced or can a piece of flush wood be placed a top of it or some kind of cover to protect the surface?
