When it comes to interior design construction, nothing is standard! But we put together this timeline a general rule of thumb, to help you start planning for your interior design & construction project.

In this blog post, we'll explore the timeline of an average construction project. Each project is unique, and there are always different milestones to achieve. From laying the foundation to adding the finishing touches, each step in the process requires careful attention to detail and expertise.

It's important to trust your project to an experienced team who can navigate these potential roadblocks with ease. Let's take a closer look at the timeline of an average construction project and gain a better understanding of what to expect from start to finish.
