Could anyone tell me how much I can expect to pay for labor in a renovation of a 150 sq ft kitchen. The kitchen is in a suburb 1 hour north of NYC in a nice neighborhood.

Here is what needs to be done. which entails pretty much a major renovation:

-Complete gut to studs.

-Correction of sagging ceiling above.

-Reinforcement and leveling of floor below

- Remove wall (not load bearing)

-move plumbing for island

-Replace drywall

-Install bay window

-Tile floor

-Tile backsplash

-Upgrade electrical to room

-Install Recessed lighting (9 cans)

-Install in cabinet lighting

-Install undercabinet lighting

-Install 3 way dimmer switches

-paint walls & Ceiling

-install cabinets

-install all appliances (DW, Double Wall oven, range hood. Fridge is *not* built in)

-Sink plumbing including disposer.

I think I got everything. If there is anything YOU could think of, please add to list.

I'm not looking for accurate numbers, but a ballpark figure for a project of this scope in line with the area I live in.

Thanks a bunch!
