If you have the private home entrance door swing outward then you will make it accessible to intruders. For this reason, the hinge mechanism needs to be positioned inside the house. With a standard hinge design, this means the door will open inward.
It's very easy to find hinges that can be used on outswing doors
You can buy residential exterior doors that swing out---they have a different threshold than in-swing doors---As far as I know there is no code restrictions against using one--They come with self locking hinges --so break ins are prevented.
Special order--most houses want a screen door--that's why in-swing doors are more common.
I installed one on an inspected job last month---passed inspection.---Mike---
