    Hi,

    I am refurbishing my entire house. Not sure what order to do the final things. This is what is left to do:

    - Fit carpets in some rooms
    - Fit solid oak floor in some rooms
    - Fit architrave and skirting
    - Watered down coat of white paint on fresh plaster
    - Gloss work on skirting and architrave and doorframes
    - Emulsion on walls
    - Emulsion on ceilings

    Would anyone be able to offer advice on what order things should be done.

    Also there is a fair amount of boxing in mdf, I would like to use the same colour on the mdf boxing as the emulsion on the walls. Is this possible?

    Many Thanks,
    Stevo
