Manual steps you have to take:
16
- If you want to declare the dining room as a tavern, the bedrooms at the top can be assigned to the tavern as rented rooms.
17
- Fill the cisterns with water, either with a bucket brigade or by plumbing flowing water. Fill so that there are two z-levels of 7-depth water to prevent muddiness. If you want to fill with buckets, designate a pond zone on the level below the main floor. If you feel adventurous and are experienced with water pressure, you can instead route (depressurized!) water to the second-to-bottom level (the one above the up staircases).
18
- If you are filling the wells with a bucket brigade and at least one well is already constructed, you'll run into issues with the dwarves stealing water from the wells to fill the wells. Temporarily deconstruct the wells or temporarily build grates beneath the wells to block the buckets to avoid this issue. Remember to rebuild the wells or remove the grates afterwards, though!

Services Walkthrough:
21
1) Start this level when your fort grows to about 50 dwarves so everyone has a place to eat.
22
23
2) Start digging with /services1. Note that this digs out the main level and three levels below for the wells.
24
25
3) Once the area is dug out, set up important furniture, stockpiles, hospital zone and garbage dump zone with /services2. Run "quickfort orders" for /services2.
26
27
4) When the table and chair have been placed in the dining room and the weapon rack and archery targets have been constructed in the barracks, run /services3 to build the rest of the furniture and configure your dining room and barracks. Run "quickfort orders" for /services3.
28
29
5) Fill the wells with either bucket brigades or by carefully routing flowing water.

6) When your fort is mature enough to need jail cells, run /services4 to set those up -- anytime after the restraints are built in the jail cell block. You also get some decorative statues to increase the value of your dining hall. Run "quickfort orders" for /services4.
