here's my current plan. fire away.
i used some crappy software so not everything is 100% correct. the upper left corner is actually a closet where the sump pump is. to the right of it is a planned butler's pantry.
all the way on the right wall past the big dining table is the stairway. the room to the bottom right is the utility room, so that can't go anywhere.
on the left wall, the long skinny rectangle is a tv, with a couch in front of it. that is going to be a sofa bed, and it's the only place a tv makes sense, so that is pretty much going to stay.
everything in the kitchen area is just my imagination at this point. the two tiny boxes represent basement support poles. the window on the left wall in the bottom left corner is an egress window. the other window on the bottom wall is a crappy basement window that gets no light anyway because the deck is over it, so it can be covered. the electrical box is just to the left of it, so i'm thinking of putting a pantry here to cover both of them up. the box in the middle is probably a cart, not an island.
the box just to the right of the bottom window is the refrigerator, and obviously that's the range next to it (probably going to be a 48"). the sink is a corner sink opposite the range, near the bar stools, so whoever is at the sink can face the entertaining area. the sink is pretty much limited to the right wall of the kitchen because that is where the plumbing is. just to the left of the corner will be the dishwasher.
also, the width of the kitchen is 17' 6". From the bottom wall to the support poles is 12'.
