  1. Great post, Jason, thanks. I especially like the suggestion that one has an opinion on how and where the artwork should be placed.

    Another thing I would add to the “tool box” would be a clean, canvas drop cloth as well as a clean, padded packing blanket, for setting items on the floor or if you have to lean something against a wall. And never drilling into a wall without something to catch the dust.

    One critical thing I’ve learned when going into a finished millionaires (or billionaires, for that fact) homes, always have disposable cloth booties to slip over your shoes. Though not necessary, this gesture will be appreciated. At the very least, make sure you have clean socks (no holes!) so if you opt to slip off your shoes, their will be no surprises.
