Step 1: Interior Trim and Doors Complete

Once the drywall and texture are done, the home builder's construction team gets busy installing baseboards and crown molding around the doors and cabinets. This step not only enhances the look but also sets the stage for later cosmetic touches. After the trim is done, the doors are installed, and painters apply the final coat, giving your home a smooth finish.
