The only issue I see with that type of kitchen layout today is that most newer houses seem to have the kitchen in the center; there's a living room/family room/foyer/something to the side.  In essence, no matter where you're going, you have to pass through the kitchen, so I could see how an inward oriented kitchen could cause traffic from family to get underfoot.

On the flip side, older houses I've been in have the kitchen isolated from the main activity areas of the house; on the back or side where you don't "have" to pass through it when you come in through the front door.

That being said, I'm still looking at building a kitchen island this year sometime, which would make our kitchen more "inward oriented."  The island would help free up food prep space.

No problem, Jeeter! I was actually thinking of you when I put in "Gents," as I remembered that you enjoy cooking for your family. 

Very neat about building your own kitchen island. I'm sure you and your wife will love it. My husband and I had also talked about building an island when we re-did our kitchen. In the end though, we went for the pub table. I love it because I can put a leaf in the middle and open it up for extra seating (we keep four bar stools under it) and/or prep space. And I can move it out of the kitchen if I want to, or shove it up against the wall. Yes, I do love it for it's flexibility as well as utility!
