My home plans, Flagstaff AZ please review and comment

I am finalizing my plans before I get them drawn up, any suggestions, or comments would be great.

The home will be about 3700 sqft. It will be located in Flagstaff on 2.5 heavily treed acres. I am planning on building the exterior walls from Sip's, and installing radiant heating. The entry way and front of the house will face north-northeast, so that the back of the house can have some passive solar heat gain in the winter. In the summer the 3' (2' in drawing) overhangs on the roof should provide shade to all the windows throught most of the day.

Any suggestions for the roof would be apperciated, I am considering scissor trusses or some type of timber beam construction. The upstairs living area (for the kids) will be located above the kitchen area. most of it will be within the main 12:12 roof, with a 6:12 shed-roof dormer where indicated for the upstairs bed rooms. The area in the lower right hand corner of the drawing will be a bonus room above the garage.
