Susan and Evan Stitt are not the only ones who enjoy the swing on the front porch of Southern Living magazine’s 2012 Idea House in Senoia. The former Peachtree City residents moved to Senoia more than a year ago, but continue to get visitors from out of town and out of state wanting to see the home and have their picture taken on the front porch swing.
