Many houses in the south have a veranda.  Often there is a rocking chair and/or swing out there.

Also consider the events that happen near the house; reread those sections to find Harper Lee's descriptions of the house itself. 

Scout pops out of the tire by the front steps.
Jem tries to stick a note into the side shutter with a bamboo pole.
The children sneak around the back fence, yard (with collards) and porch.
Don't forget the tree with the knot hole!
Also there is a pecan tree that drops nuts onto the schoolyard.

You can find summaries of the scenes in the guide on this website; those will direct you to the chapters you'll need to reread.
