Please help with front porch decision

Would you choose the low-pitched version or the gabled version?

ELevation A is much more appealing to me, with the gabled porch roof and the cupola over the garage. It seems more classic and balanced to my (untrained) eye.

Elevation A for sure. Elevation B looks like someone stepped on the porch roof :)

Elevation A! It's more balanced and symmetrical.

I prefer elevation A also- it just has more flow. Moving the little cupola (I had no idea what that thing is called, trusting VanillaCottage here, ha ha!) - anyway, moving that over the garage makes the garage look more in proportion to the house, as well.

I prefer the flat roof but only if the walls could be raised high enough (longer studs) so the porch cornice terminated into the wall, not the roof. For that matter, extend some frieze across the cornice in either case, the windows are too close to the eaves. If not possible, then shorten porch posts so the cornice does not carry over above the roof, that is the big no-no here.
