Hi Erin,
Thanks very much for the complement! To answer your question - outswinging exterior doors can be a bit tricky under the current building code. If the doors swing out there needs to be a landing that extends at least 3 feet out from the exterior wall. The landing must be almost exactly level with the interior floor level at the door threshold. (There can be a half inch drop, and no more, on the outside landing level with respect to the inside floor level). I hope this helps...

Instead of a counter with seats, have this type of curved lip to save space in the eating area?
