Have you noticed anything different about the houses going up around you?
Turns out front porches are making a big comeback, hinting at a shift in the way Americans want to live nowadays.
According to a census survey of construction, two-thirds of new homes built last year had a porch. The data also found fewer garages with the percentage of homes without a garage or carport at its highest since the late 1990s.
