Is it a good idea to put in a 2nd hand kitchen?

I have been offered a kitchen, including a modern range & rangehood, for free. It is in very good condition with white cabinetry and black granite benches & splashback. From my measurements it would fit with a few adjustments. I would probably use something else for the splashback. Our current 1970's orange pine kitchen is too difficult to update and lacks space. We would put the new kitchen down the other end of the room so could do it gradually. We have put in flatpack kitchens before and would be doing it ourselves except for plumbing & electrics. Our budget is $5K. Is this a really bad idea?

Hmm..you have a 70's orange pine kitchen in bad shape and somebody will give you a white kitchen in good shape for free. And then you have experience installing cabinets so know what you are getting into, and it won't interfere with your current kitchen too much. It sounds like a sweet deal to me!

I guess what I am worried about is if it will be a lot more difficult than installing a flat pack kitchen. I do appreciate the opportunity.

More views of the kitchen would be helpful.

I'm sure there are lots of tutorials on YouTube and Internet to help you, or ask on Houzz if you run into trouble. The hardest part might be getting the fit right, and being able to get filler pieces that match, if you need any of them.
