It's a townhome built by Guardian Homes. I decorated the two story one on the right. A few details about the home, it's 1645 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms. So not huge, but a great starter home for a young family. My cousin is the builder and he told me about a month before the show that he wanted me to decorate it. Well, at that point the house basicley just had walls. No lighting, plumbing, paint, flooring, or cabinetry. It had a long way to go before I could really start decorating. I selected the paint colors, and started coming up with ideas. I wasn't able to start putting furniture into the home until 4 days before it was suppose to be done for the show. It was crazy, but it did come together. My budget for the home was $7500. That's including mattresses, sheets, towels and all. I shopped around A LOT, trying to find the best deals. I don't think that's bad at all...furnish an entire home for $7000...heck yes! You can buy a sofa for that much. :) Anyway, I am proud of how it turned out. (Sorry about some of the pictures. They don't do it justice.The lighting was terrible.)

Here are some ways I saved money. First of all, like I said earlier, I shopped around. As you can tell I bought stuff from everywhere!! Another way I saved money was I made some of the art myself, like the "sunshine" art above the crib and the "pink" art in the girl room. If you have Photoshop or a similar program it is easy to type up a quote or song, add some color, and have it printed for inexpensive at a local print shop. To save money I took advantage of sales and coupons. I shopped on Labor Day and found several items on sale. Michael's always has sales and great coupons. All of the picture frames I bought were 40% off, then with my coupon I received an additional 25% off! If you can sew, that can also be a great way to save money. I sewed a few of the pillows for the sofa. Fabric for each pillow was about $3 each. Then, I used the insert from the pillows that came with the sofa. I sewed the velvet drapes in the living room, and spent about $40 on fabric. Pottery Barn velvet drapes are $150 a panel!! I also sewed the curtains in the nursery and got a great custom look for $35. Hope those tips help!
P.S. Both of these townhomes are for sale, so if anyone is looking for a home in Southeast Idaho and is interested, you can contact Guardian Homes for more info.
