HGTV Green Home 2008: Front Porch and GMC Yukon Hybrid

A welcoming front porch, rainwater-pervious front walk and driveway, hybrid vehicle in the drive and sustainable landscape design all contribute to a worthy first impression at HGTV's 2008 Green Home.

Green Home: Front Porch and Entryway

This gracious front porch — the first of the home's four porches — imbues the Green Home with its classic, low country charm. The tall front door, flanked by side lights, creates design symmetry that continues throughout the home. Thick flashing around doors and windows keeps the home dry during rainy winters and humid summers.
