How many boxes should I start with for my hive?

Yes, I know I should have gotten the hive long ago. Better late than never.

I was thinking of getting 1 deep and 4 mediums (2 mediums for the second brood box and 2 for honey supers). I would start with just 1 deep and when they draw out seven frames I would add a medium and when they fill that out I would add a second medium, thus completing 2 brood boxes. If they are successful enough to fill out 2 brood boxes, I would add a honey super.

Does that sound like a good amount and type of boxes for my first hive? Am I right to add them in that order 1 at a time?
