Been a long time since I have been here.
My client has a website that appears to have been built and maintained in a Multi Site environment and uses a custom theme with a lot of custom code and tools that my client does not own or wants to own. She had me migrate to my hosting service and now wants me to do some major changes.
After much hair pulling I think the best bet is for me to use Genesis and basically redo the site. I have so far chosen the Wellness child theme primarily because the layout appeared to be similar. But there are many features that I am having difficulty in emulating.
I have setup two instances of the site - http://www.fsii.noosacolour.com for the original structure and http://www.testfsii.noosacolour.com for the work area where I have installed Genesis and the child them, and where I am attempting to emulate the original using Genesis themes.
One feature in particular has me stumped on the home page and other pages and that is on a full wide screen the text appears to the left and the image to the right and appear to slide into the page to meet just left of centre. On a reduced width screen the text part appears under the image.
For some of the other features I think I may use the Smart Slider plugin.
Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Geoff - You need to create a front-page template that allows you to have full width content. The template you are using only gives you page width content.
- Used CSS to initially hide the sliding elements and position them off the page
- Once the new class is added to the elements the CSS gives a new visibility and position to the elements and then assigns a transition animation to make it happen gradually.
It may be easier for you to simply find a theme that already has that type of functionality.
