Seeking Feedback on Kitchen Layout

Hello everyone,
We'll be building this year and have made some significant tweaks to a Frank Betz plan in a few areas. One of them being the kitchen. For reference, please see the "Azalea Park" plan here:

I'm looking at a (quasi) galley setup for this space and would like some feedback on a sketch I drew up.

Other good info:
1. My wife and I both like to cook/clean and many times simultaneously, so we're trying to keep good sized aisles and multiple work zones.
2. Family of four.
3. We're in our 30's and planning on staying in this house for awhile.

Thanks in advance for all your help. I've been lurking around for awhile and have been so impressed with the pointers folks have given and received on this forum.

Since you're building...door placement flexible?

I like the original kitchen layout, but I can see moving the powder room closer to the garage. Are you planning to have a basement?

The powder room might work better, if you flip the sink and toilet and have the door open into the powder room, but against the garage wall. Less of a direct view into that area from the kitchen. Moving the bench back against the laundry room area would allow you to do this and buffer the laundry area a little from people using the powder room. Just an idea :)

Plan...

Maybe expand the screened porch and do something like this?

I have to say I like LL's suggestion or the original best too as the galley with the dead end makes for more chances of colliding for two cooks and any other people or little helpers that may need access. Consider a couple of people trying to get their own breakfast ready in the morning and another putting theirs away. How would the kitchen function for you?

I vote for the original or LL's design.

I don't like the orphan fridge next to the pantry, with no landing area next to it. I like the original kitchen best.
