Front porches are a great thing, whether you like traditional houses or modern houses. Its a shame that many modern houses shed the front porch in some chase of a minimal image. We've no time for such posturing. A front porch is the perfect way to mediate between the public life of the street, and the private realm of your home. Nothing like sitting out on a cool summer night watching your neighborhood go by. Sounds just right with a modern house like the XHouse2 here.
