    Answered . The answer to your question is yes. But I am not at all sure why you would do that. What are you trying to accomplish with that design? I think you would be well served to get very clear regarding your priorities to be set in relation to your family and the design elements necessary to meet your goals in relation to those priorities. You question suggests the need to consider the big picture before you make specific decisions that may or may not be in accord with it.
