They will have to drag me away from my house now that my kitchen has been redone. We had a power outage Friday and I laughed as I continued to do my cooking on the gas burners.

We have a gas range (and heater, and water heater) but an electric oven and I hate that. The only major thing I would do in our kitchen, besides a new sink and marble countertops, would be putting in a gas oven.

You might want to speak with me off piste during your appliance research -
We lived pioneer style for a while, it's an adventure.

May I insist on one thing? SEALED BURNERS for your gas cooktop/range? We had a big Viking in our last kitchen. A thing of Beauty, until you had to clean it. Then it was 2 hours of pissiness. We had Dacor ovens and they were fab. I like electric ovens, unlike some people...
This time around, my K found GE Professional s/s cooktop made by DCS (S.Korean company) and snapped it up. We don't have room for 6 burners and a griddle anymore so this was a more difficult search. I hate stainless appliances, but K bought this one before I could vote. I actually like my glass cooktop with enameled burners and cast grates (GE again, I think) that we have now; the DCS is going in soon, though. We also found a VentAHood for a steal somewhere. We got a Bosch D/W, but I don't like it. I much preferred our Asko. I forgot to take a laundry basket loaded with dishes, glasses, plan, utensils when we went D/W shopping this time - maie sure you do that to see if your glasses and bowls fit. We use large deep bowls and it's not compatible with Bosch.
There's so much cool stuff out now. I prefer stainless over china sinks. And I got one of those professional dishwasher hosedown job faucets - can't wait for that to go in. If you do alot of boiling, the faucet at the stove is nice, but it's a major flood hazard! And don't forget a warming oven! And one of the Gagganau built-in fryers/steamers/boilers would be nice on the counter - by the 2nd sink and prep area. If you entertain alot, a couple of dishwasher drawers to handle just glasses is great; one by HT and one by the other side of the sink in kitdhen, or by 2nd sink.
You must really love your area if you are pouring so much dinero into the house. Moving is out of the question?

My oven is a Dacor dual fuel, the best of both worlds and easy to clean. I got the GE monogram hood because it looks so cool.

Perhaps moving would be easier.

Moving is SO not an option. There are a number of reasons why, but the most impirtant one is that this is what just we moved INTO.
