I'm looking for something where instead of having the long blog on the front page, it will be "page" and all the other other pages on the site will be "pages". Most the stuff I'm finding is too fancy/has a blog feel to it. I'll keep looking, but I'm about to draw up a schema and have a developer put something together. I thought maybe there was a free solution out there.

You can do that even with the original default Kubrick theme or one of its later versions; just do all pages, not posts.
If I remember correctly, the home.php (as opposed to index.php) template is specifically customizable for the homepage. You can do just pages, not posts, and completely customize the page templates - as well as the archive template.
There are some tutorials for customizing Kubrick if you hunt around a bit. That's the original "default" used with WP so there should be plenty, in addition to there being some books that go into detail.

I didn't find a home.php file in either of the default themes that came with wordpress (Kubrick or the other one). I did download the "hybrid" free theme from wordpress and it has a home.php file. I'll poke around with it a bit and see if I can come up with something.
