comment Should I install bracing behind drywall for upper cabinets?
shirlock, that pic was just an example I found in a separate question. It's not how I did my bracing. :-)

comment Should I install bracing behind drywall for upper cabinets?
The key to your response is "as long as your studs are 23 inches or less". This is a really old house and the studs are all over the place basically, not even close to a standard 16 inch on center, so I can't depend on standard spacing. Even marking the stud locations won't save me as much time as having a solid backing brace.

Great suggestion. I hadn't considered 2x6 as opposed to 2x4. I had to remove a patch of lathe plaster to make room for the bracing. I will be installing the bracing today and I did open enough to put in 2x6. Anything to make this job go faster when we get to the finishing stage!

Thanks for answering my questions, and the links for the thinset and grout. Here's a link to the tile we're going with: homedepot.com/p/… It's an impervious tile, yet $0.99/sq ft. We're found of the look too.
