The first thing should be installation of
your insulation on all outside walls and in the attic.

Your central heat/air should be installed as
soon as the area is framed.
Depending on your bath fixtures, you may
want some of them delivered and placed inside before your interior walls are completed.
Dont make changes to any of your load
bearing walls without consulting a professional.
Kitchen cabinets can be installed as soon as
your walls are completed on the inside.
If you plan to do the interior yourself,
start at one end of the house and work yourself through one room at a time.
Hanging sheetrock will normally require two
people unless you have a handy little piece of equipment that holds the sheetrock against
the ceiling while you nail it in place.
If you intend to paint your walls, it will
be easier if you paint them before installing your trim around the doors and windows.
Cover any windows and use an airless sprayer to save time and effort. Remember to have
plenty of ventilation so you arent overcome by paint fumes.
If you are going to hang wallpaper or cover
some of your walls with fabric, wait until all painting is completed in the other rooms.
