I'm a U.S. speaker, and I'm editing a text using Australian speech. The way they are using this term "out the front" sounds like the way U.S. English would say "out front", meaning in the front part of a building or some sort of enclosed location, but I can't find this anywhere, and I want to make sure.

e.g. The buildings were all the same, with the same colour roofs and with gardens out the front.

The buildings were all the same, with the same colour roofs and with gardens out the front.

Thanks for any help you can provide, Michelle
