Kitchen Help Wanted!

For 14 long years we've suffered with one of the most outdated kitchens left in America.  No, really - I mean that!  It's not just hyperbole!  Anyway, like I've mentioned in a previous post or two, it's time to start addressing this issue.  Yaaay!  Wait, wait, wait - don't get too excited yet.  I'm still in the "thinking-about-how-to-go-about-the-whole-thing" stage.  I read a lot of great blogs, and watch all kinds of shows on HGTV, and they all make it look so easy.  Heck, on HGTV these people have new kitchens in an hour - and that includes commercials!

I'm really not procrastinating here.  I need to plan, mull, plan, fret, plan, understand, fret, plan before I can really dig in.  And that's where YOU come in!  With all the great bloggers out there - could, or better yet, would any of you care to share a simple step-by-step?  I don't mean the details, just the logical steps to get from beginning to end.  Here's what I know so far...

1.  Set up a temporary kitchen in the dining room.

2.  Gut the kitchen.

Aaaaand, that's about it!  What next?  Update the wiring THEN update and move the plumbing? At what stage does the insulation go in?  When does the floor go in?  Last?  No, that wouldn't make sense...hmmm.

The kitchen is a place of adventure and entirely fun, not drudgery. I can’t think of anything better to do with family and friends than to be together to create something. - Ted Allen

So you see what I'm looking for?  Please don't feel the need to spend a lot of time with details, just the logical progression.  

Thanks in advance for any thoughts one might have!  Oh, and just for fun - here's a preview pic of the kitchen as she stands now!

Ha!  I went with black and white intentionally!  Color pics will come as the project gets under way!
