What order should you remodel a house?

Fortunately, we have worked with many Central Ohio homeowners on their comprehensive home renovation projects and we know how many details are needed to get a complete home renovation done right. We love to plan, design, and build the renovations our customers dream of, and over the years, we have developed a general checklist for comprehensive home renovation to help our customers better understand the process. The extent of this step is largely due to your plan. You may need to do a thorough reconstruction, or this may only consist of framing a few new walls.

This step includes all the “behind the scenes” elements and is usually executed simultaneously with reconstruction and framing. Basically, anything that needs to go into floors, walls, or ceilings will be completed in this step. It could include some minor plumbing and electrical adjustments, or it could consist of a complete rewiring or remodeling of your home's plumbing. Once everything has been redesigned and rebuilt, all the mechanical components are where they need to be, and the insulation is in place, drywall can be built.

It will be necessary to glue it with adhesive tape and muddy it, and then dry and sand the mud. Once the walls are smooth, they are ready for priming, painting, or other finishing. Many contractors like to paint at this point to avoid dripping or overpainting on final finishes. Anything that needs to be “fixed” in your space will be installed right now.

The kitchen and bathroom furniture and accessories will start to be installed and, at this stage, you'll really start to see how your space is coming together. At this stage, refrigerators, stoves, dishwashers and any other mechanical appliances and devices are installed. Your home is likely to be fully functional right now, although some final items are missing. Week 1: site preparation and demolition Week 4: drywall and finishes.
