I really liked the layout of this theme Hueman from here http://alxmedia.se/themes/.  What you see pictured there is what I thought I would start with.  Instead, I received this http://screencast.com/t/2u1SiP0qIae.  

The site is at marketcoding.tedpenner.com.  Assistance in starting with what I saw is greatly appreciated.

The structure and layout seem the same in both, but the demo version has content and pictures that make it look nice.  They most likely don't have the rights to include the photos with the theme, which is why you are starting with a bare site.

Is there something in particular that you want to change?

I have a fresh wordpress site that I haven't started creating yet, so I uploaded this theme and can try to help.  I am by no means a Wordpress developer, but will do my best.

When you say without scrolling, I'm assuming you mean you still want the slider, but do not want to have to scroll up and down.

First, you need create a post category, in the demo they called it "FEATURED".  Posts in this category will be a part of the slider. To Do this, go Posts, then Categories.

Next, activate the slider and select the category from above.  Go to Appearance, Theme Options, Blog.  Select the category from above for "Featured Category", and increase the slider to your desired number.

Now, when you create posts and add them to the category you created, the picture will show up in the slider.
