Default Whole house light oak...

I am beginning the long and arduous process of painting/changing stain/etc of all of the light oak in my home. My home was built in 2004 and at the time the light oak (not stained just semi gloss poly or shellac) was in the "in" look. My wife and I have thought its time for a change. The problem is that we have a lot of areas to hit, everything that is wood has this look and we have a lot. cabinets, trim, floors, basement, mud room, bathrooms, etc.

My first test if you will was to start with the basement since its kind of separate to a degree and i thought it would be a good test of the theory and to see how long this is going to take. I began by taking off all baseboard trim as we have fluffy carpet and thought i would get better results by taking baseboard off and working on it in garage as opposed to try and fight carpet. So far things have been going ok my process is as follows-

-i did a quick clean of baseboard with simple green
-filled in nailholes with wood filler
-once dry i did a sanding with 120 sponge sander.
-cleaned off dust with denatured alcohol
-once dry i applied a coat of zinnser BIN shellac base primer
-once primed i let sit until dry and i did a light sand with 220 sponge
-blew off dust from the 220 sanding
-applied my first coat of benjamin moore advance white paint
-did light said with 220 once 1st paint coat was dry and applied final 2nd coat.

How does this all sound? I have been debating on using the klean strip de glosser for some of the work and was wondering how people felt about it?This would save some time and be helpful for things like doors and such. Speaking of doors, doing the actual door seems easy enough but the frame is another issue. The frame components are all the same light oak and i wasn't planning on taking these all apart as they are all level and in place. Using a deglosser on something like this seems like a no brainer but i welcome any tips or tricks. My concern again is the puffy carpet and trying to get around that towards the floor. This whole project is a very time consuming and i was wondering if people had any other tips or tricks? At some point i will get to the kitchen but i wanted to start on some easier items first.

Thanks for any and all advice.
