I'm overwhelmed with uncertainties about what I want done. From my non-professional eyes, I think I want to relocate my existing kitchen out to the living/dining room to make it a great room, then change the existing kitchen to be extended part of family room. However I have no idea if that's a feasible goal and worth doing. Involving a pro? Who exactly should I be calling? I called a few contractors and the first thing they asked was what I need to have done and what's my budget. The minute they sensed my uncertainty, they lost interest. I need professional eyes to tell me what can be done. And I don't want to throw out a number when I don't even know how much work will be involved. Any advice?

xecrv - send me an email and I'll send you my PPG - project programming guide (no cost or obligation) - it is way of organizing your project and figuring out what you want to accomplish without thinking about the end design just yet (preconception - the enemy of good design) - the program drives the design. In general moving kitchens and baths are challenging in that you have waste pipes and vent stacks as well as water supply and unique power requirements. But if that meets your program don't compromise.
