Running water lines

I am installing new cabinets and off course have to run new water lines. I will not run in out side wall (to many bursting pipes). Would it be OK to run in the bottom 3-4 in of cabinet. The space between the floor and base floor of the cabinet. I would just use 90 elbow to come up,near back wall of cabinet. I don't think I could run the dishwasher waste line that way.

Keeping the piping away from external walls is a good move. Pushing them up through the floor of the cabinet is done all the time. Just make sure there is enough pipe sticking up that should the cabinet need removing it can be lifted off the pipes after you cut the stop valve off. I would use PEX as well, since you didn't indicate what you planned on using.

The dishwasher waste line must go up and over the dishwasher or to a point fastened to the bottom of the countertop before final drain. Where do you plan on it draining? Sink, directly?
