First time remodler--feedback on bath and kitchen layouts, please!

We live in a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom house in the San Francisco East Bay. The existing bath is in very sorry shape and needs to be gutted, which is the catalyst for this project. I've spent a lot of time considering what other improvements I'd like to make, and my goals, in order, are to:

1) fix the existing bathroom (Bath #1 in drawings)

2) add second bathroom (Bath #2 in drawings)

3) improve kitchen storage, counter space, and layout without touching the kitchen's west wall (previous owner installed a nice sink, dishwasher, and countertop 5 years ago; we can match that style)

4) maintain wall space in the master bedroom for the bed to go that's NOT under windows (I'm not concerned about smaller closet sizes--our stuff will fit fine)

We're looking at a $150-200k budget.

I'm looking for feedback on:

1) Overall proposed design

2) Bathroom 1 layout

3) Kitchen east and south wall layout

As a reference, the drawings are oriented with north at top; the door at the very north is the back door that goes to a small deck with stairs down to the garage. The dining room is south of the kitchen; my daughter's room is south of bath #1. Living / entry is off of the dining and not pictured here.

Thank you so much!
