Dear Uncle Dixer: Is it ok if a house has its front door and back door aligned in a straight line? Meaning, if you step in the house through the front door, you will see back door that goes to the back yard or decks.

Answer: It is not a desirable situation because people will tend to go out of the house again. It is best to put some object in between so people will tend to go into the living room or the kitchen instead of out onto the back yard.
