    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.
