Replacing an overbearing garage roof with a deck?
A month ago, I was on the forum showing pictures of our newly-framed house addition. Sadly, the 2D elevation pictures that looked great to us in 2D looked horrible in 3D. After consulting with another architect, and seeing many alternatives in 3D, we have decided to rip off the overbearing garage roof and replace it with a flat roof with deck over top. The original pictures of the ugly garage roof can be seen in the thread entitled "frustrated with split entry". Below you will see a picture of the proposed new look.
Since so many of you took the time to comment and try to help me fix the curb appeal of our house, I thought you might be interested in what solution we arrived at. Do you think having a door and window behind the deck (as opposed to a more symmetrical look) is a problem? Do you like the window design over the front door?
Thanks to all for your support and helpful comments! Btw, my DH doesn't USUALLY look this depressed; it's just the thought of the waste of having to rip off the existing roof, I guess!
