1192 Lagom House 2 Story - upstairs/downstairs, front porch/back porch

The Lagom House 2 Story is a house with two porches - a front porch and a back porch. A house with a porch is a wonderful thing. There are few things more social during warm weather than to sit on your front porch watching the neighborhood go by, inviting a neighbor to sit for a moment and chat, a wonderful middle ground between the safety of your home and being in the front yard. So the question that comes to mind, for this Architect at least, is why not a back porch? Why not that? Why would we not want a similar graceful bridge to our own private outside world of our own back yard? A place where you can take meals outside, an outdoor living room, and really - the best place ever to watch a summer shower.
