Last week was one of the busiest weeks I have had in a long time. I got to stage a new-build house so I spent the first two days shopping for it and the last three setting it all up. I even rented a U-haul and everything. Tom was out of town so it was basically me and Morgan moving everything. I'm so tired... and buff.
This was my first time staging for a builder and I learned a lot. First of all, I went to look at the house by myself to get ideas. Next time I will have the builders meet me there so I can get an idea of what they are looking for. That will prevent numerous trips, I think. Also, I won't give a quote until after I have seen and planned out the house. And I will rent furniture from a store that will deliver. That will save me a lot of time and energy moving things and setting them up by myself.

in progress -- the builder wanted a couch instead of all four chairs (and I totally agree).
fireplace in process -- instead of the mirror, the builder wanted people to be able to see the t.v. hookups on that wall.
What do you think? Do you like it or is there something that needs to be moved? I like it but am so close to it that I think it's all perfect so I could use a fresh set of eyes.
I'll show the rest of the house throughout the week. If you want to buy it, let me know. ;)
And, I entered this turkey into a "cutest kids" contest. The one with the most "likes" on FB wins a photography session with Dana Peterson Photography (local Boise). I'd sure appreciate if you "liked" Morgan's photo at here. And be sure to like Dana Peterson Photography too. Thanks!
