Yep, still having a hard time. I may need another coffee.
Let's make it easier. Show us a brief listing of the user folder. ls -Fl will suffice. Point out what you want.
User properties General Emblems Permissions Owner: user-x Access: Read and write Group: user Access: Read only Others: Read only Help Close
... One of the things that makes your example a little confusing is that the username here is "user-x", and the group name is "user".
Add Users Username: user Full name: user-x ...... ....... ...... ....... login group is user. Invite user into other groups? [ ]: wheel operator ...... ....... ...... ........
I would like it this way, and that the user group has permissions on the user's folder properties to read, write and execute.Now, what you want is the group "user" to also have write permission. From a command line, that's completely trivial: Just run the command "chmod g+w ..." on the object (replace ... with the name or full path of the object).

chmod 0674 /home/user-x
I was following OPs question as it has taken this long to get to this point. If he wants this then that's what I gave him; weird or not.The user needs x on the directory or else they won't be able to cd into it. Your 674 is probably the weirdest directory permissions I've seen, a more sane directory permission is 0775 or 0770.
