In What Order Should I Remodel My Kitchen
 
OK...finally starting on my kitchen remodel!! Here are the things we'll be doing:

demo
new cabinets/countertops
porcelain tile floor
moving gas line for range
moving plumbing for sink
moving electrical for disposal / microwave
paint
removing soffits/patchwork

Since I'm playing general contractor for this...can you guys give some tips on how to order the projects?

I have a general idea...but there are some grey areas for me as well. In what order should these different tasks be handled?

Any other tips or info for a first time homeowner/kitchen remodeler would be helpful.

Thanks guys.
