Unique design ideas offer a home court advantage

Written by: Karen Bradner

Nine years ago, when OSU women’s basketball coach Jim Foster and his wife Donna were lured to Columbus from their family home perched high on a ridge in the hills of Tennessee, they decided to accompany their physical move with a mental shift.  The couple’s two sons, Christian and Andrew, were in their early 20s and wouldn’t be making the move, so it was time for Jim and Donna to put their own residential wish lists front and center.  Fortunately, the Fosters have never had much trouble knowing exactly what they want when it comes to picking out a house. They’ve moved multiple times in their 36 years of marriage. Sometimes a new coaching position was the impetus, and sometimes the Fosters just happened upon a place that caught their eye—maybe on a walk through the neighborhood, or while glancing through the real estate section of the newspaper.  “We just always look at different places,” says Donna. “We’re always ready to move.” 

“It’s just what we do,” adds Jim.
