A Pre-Drywall Checklist for Your Custom Home

Once drywall is hung, your house will really begin to take shape—but before you reach this stage, there are a few things you should check with your builder before drywall goes up, including things like room dimensions, outlet placements, and more. At Sekas Homes, we understand that you expect the best from your luxury custom home, and that’s why we have a thorough pre–drywall checklist for you to go over before the next stage of your home’s construction begins.

Custom Home Pre-Drywall Checklist

Here are some of the things you should check before your home goes into drywall:

  1. Check the room dimensions with your builder.
  2. Ensure that all the closets—including bedroom, hall, and bath closets—are in the correct place.
  3. Check all light switch, outlet, cable, internet, and phone line placements.
  4. Verify the door swings for each room, and check to see if they will interfere with any light switches or sockets.
  5. Make sure all your light fixtures and ceiling fans are going to be in the correct location—especially things like recessed lighting, chandeliers, and wall lighting.
