Front Porch Comeback

Front and side porches are making a comeback in 2011, says Kermit Baker, chief economist for the American Institute of Architects, which performs a quarterly Home Design Trends Survey. One reason is simple: Front porches help create a sense of community, something that more traditional suburbs lack.

ICI Homes offers a welcoming front porch with its Bromley model at Trafalgar Village, just 20 minutes south of Disney World in Kissimmee. The Groveton model, one of ICI’s most popular, also has a front porch perfect for entertaining and is offered at communities in Fernadina Beach, Gainesville and Jacksonville.
