Please help. Roof style? (Hip or Gable) for addition.
Thank you in advance for your opinion. We're adding a 1 story kitchen to our 2 story Hip Roof House. It has 10/12 pitch and a matching garage with the same roof.
My dilemma: matching the pitch means we'll have to replace a window in the upstairs with with a much smaller one.
If I lower the pitch does it look weird? If I'm changing the pitch should I change to a gable roof so it is less obvious?
I've always read that you need to match roof styles. My husband says you won't even notice either way. I'm just not sure. Any input will be greatly appreciated.
