If you're having custom cabinets installed, no reason they can't make the uppers a couple inches shorter if you want your full 18" between countertop and upper cabinets.

You could prolly learn to live with the 16", too.

Your half-inch subfloor is no subfloor at all to my mind. If you've got a height problem, I'd start by removing that subfloor and starting with a minimum of 3/4" T&G plywood and work up from there. Using a membrane such as Ditra from Schluter or one of Noble Company's products could save you a little more height.

My opinion; worth price charged.
