How does the loan process work for a home that is half-way through a remodel and down to studs?

My husband and I are looking for our first home and have fallen in love with a house that is down to the studs in some areas in the middle of a remodel. The home has no structural issues – it is all cosmetic – but does need all new applicances (has none), new walls (70s style paneling in living room), new flooring (has concrete now) etc. Would we need to get a construction loan even though it is structurally okay? How would the mortgage process work for this?
