The Huse family finally got tired of all the driving. Two years ago, they packed up and moved to the 18th floor of the Mosaic Building on Akard Street in downtown Dallas. The convenience and central location sparked an idea in the family that life doesn’t have to be centered on a commute. Without the tedious 45-minute trek to work five days a week, the Huses say they have time to enjoy a fuller life. The central location allows friends to visit more often, with activities for 9-year-old Jackson and 6-year-old Sophia never more than a few minutes away. The private school they attend – Lakewood Presbyterian School – is just 10 minutes away.
These days, the Huses spend less than a quarter of the time they did in the car as when they lived in Cedar Hill.
