Your new home will need an appropriate network of pipes to cater for its clean water and waste disposal requirements. These particular installations are normally fixed within the walls. This process can be capped off and trimmed out once the interior wall construction is complete.
HVAC ductwork and electrical outlets installation

This installation is then followed up by the application of insulation and the sealing of all joints. After this, the roughing in of electrical outlets will then commence. You will definitely require outlets and lighting fixtures and a safe wiring for the big household appliances such as heaters, air conditioners and essential kitchen appliances. At the same time, the installation of a main electric panel as well as sub panels will be necessary.
Wall insulation and ceiling installation
Depending on the prevailing climatic conditions, there are certain location specific guidelines on the insulation of walls. Ideally, warmer regions necessitate lesser wall insulation. The next step will be the installation of the ceiling. Generally speaking, gypsum wallboards, which have been crafted from drywall are commonly utilized. However, there are many other options you could settle for. This includes ceiling tiles, beaded plywood panels or natural wood.
Plumbing fixtures and fittings installation
Plumbing fixture such as bathtubs, shower stalls, toilets and sink faucets must also be installed. Most of them are generally interfaced with walls. The roughing in of these facilities has to be very accurate, and the pipes well protected and anchored in a secure manner.
Wallboard and wall trim installations
Materials like gypsum, masonite or even wood are some of the most common options when it comes to wallboard installation. After this is properly executed, a finish is then applied. Also, the wall trim will have to be installed too. This particular process involves putting up trims for baseboards, corners and even crown moldings. It can as well entail the hanging of interior doors.
Caulking and painting
In strict accordance to the exact color scheme you ultimately decide to opt for, the walls of your new designer home will have to be caulked and painted. This process commences with priming, and in the long run, culminates with the application of a finish coat.
Cabinet and millwork installation
This step involves the installation of kitchen and bathroom cabinetry in accordance to your preferred plan.
Finally, the flooring will have to be laid out. If you opt for carpeting, then baseboards should be installed first. On the other hand, for hardwood or composite flooring, this trim is usually laid out after the flooring has already been installed.
