Well there ya go, the invisible stair way under the hatch into the coal room, I would think that showing them on a layout for review would be pertinent for evaluation.

But my bad, I read the OP's question and answered without reading all the posts subsequent to the original post, (2) minutes in the penalty box for me....
When its all said and done there is usually more said than done

Another is 32high by 21wide by the stove with small batch cooking essentials like salt, pepper, spices etc.

If we are not at work we eat almost exclusively food cooked at home. Including weekends, roughly half of the meals are cooked at home. If anything, I may just wrap the new kitchen around where the small bay window is and either join the counter with an island or shorten the island from 8 to 6 feet. I kind of like to be able to walk around it.

The new proposed layout has 2 full height cabinets next to the oven cabinet.

As far as the load bearing wall, most of it is still there. The 13'-7" opening is just 2 feet wider than I currently have on the other side, and the house has stood without any wall cracks or sagging since early 1960's. I'll just have to see how they framed the existing opening and do the same on the other side. If town building department will want me to get an engineer's sign off I will gladly do so.
The oven setup in the dining room is ridiculous !
