Do I need to re-think my kitchen layout?

last month

I am building a post and beam home and this is the kitchen layout as of now. The actual "shell" of the house will be put up first, then I could go in re-design anything I want since there will be no walls. For some reason I am not happy with this layout. I'm not sure if the two 'L' walls are not big enough or the pantry is too big and will look odd. I do want a large pantry and this is the only place I could think to put it. Two islands maybe? So much dead space on one side. I know the stove is too small in this drawing as well, needs to be 36" and I do not want it in my island. Ceilings are 10' and open to the great room and there is a loft over the kitchen. Stairs can't really be moved as they abut floor to ceiling windows on two levels. Any advice is appreciated!
