Continuity 

The changing of the interior of the house after the second season messed up the scheme of the house. From exterior shots the driveway/garage of the Cunningham house was to the right of the front door, while from the interior sets the garage was still to the right of the front door (i.e. it would be on the left as viewed from outside).
