In this blog series, we have explored the custom home building process step by step from how to prepare your ideas for your custom home design, choosing a lot, the construction process itself, and your custom home foundations, framing, and mechanical installation, to insulation and drywall.
Once your custom home building has gone through all of those steps, your home is actually starting to look like a home and not like a construction site. Exciting times come ahead when the exterior and interior finishes stage starts. This stage of the custom home building process is a fun stage for homeowners because they can start looking at all the selections they made during the design and planning process at the very early stages!

The interior finishes stage starts after drywall and insulation are ready, the drywall is painted with a prime coat and then we are ready to start working in all the interior details.
What are Interior Finishes?
The interior finishes are all the details and selections you have made for your new Calgary custom home. So, it is when the interior of your new custom home will start taking shape. During this stage, your custom cabinets and built-ins are made, painted and installed.
Your countertops, lighting and plumbing fixtures, and appliances will be put in place. All doors, mirrors, showers doors, trims, baseboards, and other hardware, interior painting and flooring will also be installed.
