Default Attic Bedroom Wall/Ceiling Raise

Hi,

I'm currently in the process of searching for a home to buy and came across two potential properties. However, there is a slight concern. I like the size and layout of HOUSE 2, but the upstair bedrooms have drastic slopped walls/ceilings.

Is it possible to have a contractor come in and decrease the slope of the walls in HOUSE 2 to resemble those of HOUSE 1? Attached are pictures of the outside and interior room.

Price estimate without knowing the beam structure in the walls?

The only way I know of is to raise the whole roof or change the pitch. Both options are going to be quite expensive.
