New construction stain/seal package advice

Ok guys, the title says it all. I've got a new construction stain/seal job coming up and I'm a little unsure about this job. I've done lots of new work projects but never stain packages. I did help a buddy years ago on one of his old stain jobs and it was a PITA.

I need some clever advice on how to go about this job. I was planning on spraying the stain and sealer before the trim guy puts it this general procedure?? I guess I could let the trim guy put it up and then go behind him like we do on a normal prime/paint job but that seems more difficult.

I need tips please and I'm assuming I'll just use sanding sealer instead of poly...I know lots if guys that have good luck going that route.

My buddy who's doneva bunch of these back in the 80's and early 90's, says to spray in one room and stack them in another room. He said it's a ton of work just handling the trim 3 or 4 times and of course sanding in between.

I'm going to try and tackle it but thhs job sounds like I need to charge 6-8k just to make a little money. The house is about 1500 square feet, so it's not overly huge.
