It makes sense to me to have the walls painted first, but I wanted to hear GW thoughts. Thanks.
Our GC painted walls first, then cabinets, then touch ups if needed.
Easier to paint before. Uses more paint, but less labor. Less chance of splotches too. On the other hand when I remodelled my old house I didn't paint before. So few areas that needed paint around the cabinets that it wasn't worth it and I painted myself so labor was just my time.
Our GC primed before texture and then primed with a tinted primer after texture. Final coat didn't go on until after cabinets.
Whatever your builder figured when s/he bid your project. Either approach can be made to work.
Good luck with your project!
