I couldn't agree more!  We have lived in Milagro Cohousing for 5 years  in a 
house with our dining room on the front .....facing the common  footpath.  The 
dining room becomes part of the of front porch where we  spend much of our 
time inside or out, depending upon the weather.  We enjoy  greeting our 
inviting them for a beer or coffee and, in case of a  committee meeting, it's 
easy to spread out papers on the dining table without  entering the clutter 
of the back rooms.  
 So, why isn't the living room (or family room, if the living room  is a 
separate more formal room) on the outside rather than the  kitchen?
