Help design our kitchen!

This might not be an approp place for this, so if the mods need to delete, feel free. However, I GREATLY trust the opinions of the hounds and have been on this site for a while, so I'd love any input.

My husband and I are gutting a townhome and therefor get to design a new kitchen! We've decided on a basic layout for the parlor floor- see attached. Our concern is the sink situation- it looks like there won't be much room to the side of the sink in the island. We've considered making that a prep sink, but then where should we put the big sink? I really do NOT want to move the stove as putting it on the back wall would mean the vent hood will be blocking windows, and I love the placement of the fridge. We will also be sticking dual convection ovens somewhere, tbd.

Does anyone here have a similar layout? Or suggestions? Is it an epically bad idea to disrupt the holy "work triangle" by putting the main sink near the windows? Does a garbage disposal then go in both sinks? It's also virtually impossible for us to visualize how this is going to look/feel as no rooms in the house currently are this large so we can't even plot it out with cardboard boxes or something.

Ideas?!

edit: sorry for the giant pic, I almost never post pics to chowhound and didn't realize it would be so huge.
