“Your brand new, empty house. Christening your house is a must. And the time when you have nothing more than a mattress on the ground and a lamp in the corner is the perfect time to get it done. Not only do you get the thrill of not having any house baggage just yet (nothing kills the mood like looking up and seeing the stain on the ceiling from your leaking roof that you should have replaced four years ago), but you’ll probably never see it this empty ever again.”
