On a typical colonial home the front door is flush with one or two steps up. When the door is opened to enter, the center stairway is almost directly at door, and makes it a tight space to greet guest.
My question is - how can that be changed - i'm thinking about bumping out the entry and making the entry door a double - that way guest come into a enclosed space and if you open the right side of the new door, you are further away from the stairway. Has anybody seen that done - or know of other entry options?
