Profile 2: The Traditional Family

This is the story of the Godfrey Family: Linda & Tim, their son Josh & daughter Emily. With the addition of Emily 6 years ago, the Godfrey’s knew that they were going to outgrow their small 2 bedroom ranch. They waited as long as they could saving every possible penny for a downpayment on a new home and have been shopping around for about a year now. They have given much thought (and time) to buying an existing home as Tim is a stickler for traditional or “normal” looking homes, but Linda (an avid Dwell reader), just can’t find a place that has the open floor plan and clean interiors that she desires. She feels that many traditional homes waste squarefootage on rooms and features her family will rarely use. Money spent on formal dining rooms and fireplaces could be better serve them on features they could use every day like a mudroom, more storage space, and possibly a homework nook. That said, Tim and Linda have finally agreed (partially to save their marrige) on finding a lot in their suburban\rural town and building a traditional looking home with interior spaces that will fit their contemporary lifestyle.....
