INTERIOR FINISH SCHEDULE

Apprentice's picture

*
Do any of you old pro's out there have a good example of an interior finish schedule you would be willing to share? I know you should have as much information as possible, but how to organize it? By Room? By Finish? By completion date? What's essential, what's not.

Thanking you all for any help you may offer,

I remain, an Apprentice

If you mean architectural schedules like Rich mentioned, I can help you. Is that what you mean?

Hey Apprentice, If you are talking about the finish trim work in a house generally here's the way I do it. first off, after the drywallers have done their taping, mud work, and texturing, the doors usually arrive. I usually hang all the interior doors, and then go to the closets and build clothes racks and shoe racks. I then install all the door and window casing and window stools. Then I go room by room and install all the baseboard and shoe. This covers everything that is included in the base price per sq. ft. for interior trim. Now I go to the extras that recieve an up charge from the standard price such as crown moulding, picture frame moulding, pull out stairs wraping beams etc. Doing interior trim work is very competitive here in Texas and a trim carpenter needs a procedure that will get him through a house quickly without skimping on craftsmanship if he wants to stay working. Hope I read your question right, if not just disregard my post. Mad Dog M.

If by "interior finish schedule" you mean what architects mean, my architect uses a table with the following columns: room (number, name, etc), wall finish (paint, paper, etc), floor finish (vct, carpet, etc), ceiling finish (paint, etc), and notes. Each column usually uses some cryptic code like "F-2" which refers to yet another table which describes what the finish is, like paint color, or carpet style.

If that's not what you mean, then disregard this post.

Wishing you luck in your apprenticeship. Rich.

Doors first. I don't like to see them laying around getting dinged up. I'll do the locksets while I'm at it.

At this stage, the GC may have the finish sub take a powder, and they may paint, or do other things. But I do want the doors in first

Then Door Casings. Hopefully I know what the finish floor will be at this stage, and will shim them up to accomodate for the flooring.

Then Base

Then Crown.

I wonder if you mean the different trades to finish the interior, in order?

drywall, tape & finish

cabinets & trim

finish woodwork, paint walls & ceiling

finish elect. , switches, plugs, light fixtures

counter tops

floor covering

plumbing fixtures

wallpaper

final cleanup

start next job

That's pretty much the order I do it, some trades can overlap though.
