Dollhouse Construction: order of interior finishing

What should I finish inside the house before I install my stairs?

If you set your stair-base into the stair cutout, you’ll see that what’s behind it becomes hard to reach because the stairs are in the way.  That’s what should be completed first.  In some houses, it’s wallpaper (or painting), flooring, and window trim.  Depending on what choices you have made, you might be installing Porch Lights (which get wired to the inside of the house) even before wallpapering.  Plan for the things that will be done inside your house before you start gluing things in. 

I received a photo from a builder who made paper-cutouts of everything she planned for her house and layed them more-or-less in place around the house… wiring, built-in cabinets, bathroom fixtures and dividers, they were all there.  What a great way to plan the inside of the house.  Doing this, or something like this, will help visualize the steps that get from an empty space to a completed, finished, and furnished interior.
