Hello all!

I posted this question at the bottom of another thread (, but I didn’t receive any responses, so I thought I’d try again in a different forum. I am trying to lay out a kitchen for our family of 6 where multiple people can work. I’d like to keep a 28” south-facing window, and I’d like for the sink to face the back yard, but unfortunately the best idea that I have come up with has a smaller window and a west-facing sink:

Here is the original floor plan for comparison:

The changes I am making are mostly reverting the layout back to its original form. Please feel free to criticize any aspect of the plan.

Here are some pictures prior to demolition.

I would like to salvage these cabinets but can’t think of a way to include them, and I don’t think they’d be comfortable to work at.

Thanks in advance!
