After the exterior is completed it is time for your custom home builder to finish walls, paint, install doors and windows, hang cabinetry, put down flooring and install tile. You will be able to move into your new custom home soon, so at this time you should be very close to selling your existing home. Once the drywall has been put into place it is time for the fun task of selecting all the design elements that are going into your house. This includes:
- Painting and Wallpaper
- Windows and Doorways
- Baths, showers, sinks, and toilets
Many of these take six weeks up to three months to order, so be sure to meet with your custom home builder early in the process on designing your interior. Usually, the installation of these home design pieces is a breeze and many of the interior fundamentals you've been waiting on for months and months merely take a day or two to install.
If any of this is overwhelming to you, no worries - your custom home builder or architect is there every step of the way.

Although all of these phases may seem like an uphill battle, a professional custom home builder will make your custom home building experience a pleasure. The end result will be worth the time and money, as you will be able to spend your life in a house that is just perfect for you. As you end the project keep in mind that clean up both in and out of the home will be required.
