As of now, i plan to subcontract painting as the last step but before flooring. Where would you put paint?

Planning to do something like this...

1. demo
2. frame
3. Bathrooms/kitchen
4. Drywall
5. Paint
6. Trim
7. Floors (carpet, hardwood)

Add repaint after floors hardwood. And how are you going to paint trim that isnt installex yet?
We are pulling old baseboards out and possibly spraying them in garage

Looks like you have it right. Prime drywall and then drywall will need touch up etc. then finish drywall priming. Paint drywall before trim and cabinets etc.
Trim will need a final coat after installation, to fill nail holes etc.

I like it just like you have it. We will do 1 coat on the baseboards, install the flooring, install the shoe, and then do the final coat on the base and shoe.

I assume you’re not talking about a new home and/or an addition. If you are, you missed a lot of trades (excavation, foundation, roofing, mason/stucco…). Here’s our priority scheduling for a kitchen remodel:

1. General services (dust protect, set-up & lay-out)
2. Demo
3. Frame
4. HVAC
5. Plumbing - rough
6. Electrical – rough
7. Rough inspections
8. Insulation
9. Insulation inspections
10. Wall & ceiling coverings – Drywall
11. Screw Inspections
12. Paint (prime & first coat walls/ceiling)
13. Drywall – final touch-up
14. Flooring (hardwood or tile) hardwood installed sanded and apply 2 coats.
15. Cabinets - rough
16. Countertops
17. Wall coverings – tile
18. Plumbing – final
19. Electrical - final
20. Flooring – hardwood – screen and final
21. Cabinets – final (hang doors, panels and toe-kicks)(includes knobs/pulls/cups)
22. Millwork & trim – final
23. Paint – complete all trims and millwork and second coat walls and ceiling
24. Carpet (if any – probably not in a kitchen remodel – but if necessary before final paint)
25. Cabinet crown (if any) and client walk-through
26. Paint – touch-up trims after carpet F’s them up and install electrical cover plates and recessed trims that the electrician left for them
27. Clean and haul
28. Cert inspections – final
29. Collect final check – final
30. I’m out-a-there.

Just FYI, I haven’t installed shoe molding since I was a rookie – 24 years ago. If it’s an RRP job add about 10 steps to the above.
