Default Long term breeding plans/bloodline questions

Id like to get some feedback from wiser breeders than I, on what my best course of action might be, or maybe just the pros and cons of each.

I am intending to breed my own line for the next 20-30 years, and there are two males in particular I am wanting to base my entire program on. They are both proving themselves to be excellent producers of sound dogs with good temperaments, even when sometimes not bred in the most wise manner. They are both from completely unrelated bloodlines. I have, to start with, a half sister to one of them (same sire) and I am intending to take her to a son of him, which would be her nephew.

With my end goal being to work with both of these lines, what is my best course of action? Should I attempt to work with both lines separately for a number of years to improve them, before melding them into one? Or should I take my current bitch and breed her to the other bloodline right away, and work down from there, braiding in one and then the other as I go? Being as how the two males are SO drastically unrelated, I dont feel any qualms about a tight linebreed if I immediately cross them, I would just have to watch what I do from there in successive generations.
