Best time to refinish hardwood floor during remodel?

I'm currently in the process of completely remodeling my living room. The entire room, along with the hallway, has a hardwood floor, which I'll be refinishing.

As you can see from the photo, demolition has been completed. And since this is the first time I've refinished a floor, my question is regarding when to do the various sanding/staining/finishing steps during the remodel. Should all this be done before drywall goes up, after drywall has been mudded, after final painting, etc.??

Finishing the floor is last----almost.

Prime and paint the first coat--do not install base moldings or shoe (or door casings) --then finish the floor--then add the moldings and the final coat of paint.

It to easy to spatter a bit of finish on the walls or bump the walls or trim with the sanding machines for you to do the final paint before the floors.--Mike--
