    Do you have any experience using logic IC and have access to any test equipment?

    could you explain again how the two push buttons are supposed to work? Explain how you want this to work.

    Do you know anybody who are working with microcontrollers. I think the best solution would be to use a small inexpensive microcontroller. With this solution you can implement contact bouncing and the logic in one chip

    If it may cost you can use time relays with the function "delay on".
