Does your house have a step up into the front door?
Our builders have surprised me with our new front and back door stoops. The concrete was poured so that you have to step up to get into the house. That is, there's no platform at the same level as the the door; when you leave the house you go through the door and immediately step down to reach the stoop and then walk forward a step or two and step down again. I can't even believe that building codes allow this, but apparently they do.
What does your house have? I can't imagine reminding every single visitor that they have to step down as they go outside and it seems weird that when someone comes to our door I'll tower over them when I open it. My husband asked his coworkers and one, with the newest house, says his is built the same way as ours. We'll meet with the builder tomorrow but I wanted some input. I realize different locations have different codes, too.
