You want to avoid installing things that could be in the way or damaged by the upcoming work----

A common mistake is to install the switches and outlets before the drywall and paint---the tabs in the outlets are in the way of the drywall---and must be broken off in order to get the drywall in place---

If doors are installed before the flooring---the jambs need to be cut in place in order to slip the flooring under them---

Every time a mistake like that is made--time is wasted--and the possibility of damaging a finished product increases.
