Sigh. Figure out where the cabinets will go. Put some carpet tacks or
better yet, some staples outside that dimension. Cut the carpet out.
Cut the tack strip out. Put in your cabinets. The carpet stays in
place and you don't have the problems with rotting carpet and wobbly
cabinets as others have discussed. When the time comes to replace the
carpet, it will not be a big deal for the carpet guys to pull the
staples and put in new tack strip. It'll be OK.
