14. Interior Doors, Baseboards & Trim

After the dry wall is hung, or even before, your contractor will measure all the doors, make sure the swings are on correct side and that switches are uncovered. Your contractor will order both the jam and door itself, and install the casing on both sides of door. You can choose a bull nose, Spanish or Tuscan style. This will have been decided by you and your architect. The crown molding will be installed after the dry wall is up. Baseboards are installed next, with the style depending on the flooring you’ve chosen. If your choice is carpet, the baseboards will be put in place first. If choosing laminate or wood, the baseboards will be installed last. After painting is done and the doors hung, the locks and deadbolts will be put in place.
