I would put your doors in 1st, you don't want your doors sitting on the carpet. And cutting the carpet around a door jam that's not there is like impossible with out leaving gaps.

Pending on how high your carpet is you might need to cut the bottom of the doors.

Hang the doors and then take them back down for the installers. They need the door casings up and the doors down because of seaming in the doorways.
