So what is the quickest way for me to get to an initial state?

A. Create a module and add the 2 pages?

B. Create a new site, then add a module then the 2 pages?

I am just under the gun suddenly due to the fact that I spent 2 month
looking at all the different options on the market and now I have about 2
weeks to get a POC for the stakeholders ready and working....
