Before I wanted to get them settled into place though, I wanted to try to seal the junction between the walls and the floor with a bit of caulking, as well as a rough "baseboard" - it wouldn't be visible really, under the cabinets and all, but I wanted something a bit more substantial than just the caulking.
First up was trimming off the foil and plastic air barrier that extended out below the wall boards and onto the floor. This would have been so much easier if I had done it before the cabinet was put in place, but I was so happy to have Grandpa's help at that moment, that I didn't think that far ahead.
Luckily my head JUST fit under the cabinet, but that still didn't get me far enough under to reach the very corner.

|Rats, the tip doesn't quite line up.|
