Thank you sooo much for your replies. I really appreciate it.
Regarding this house , I really dont want to spend the kind of money that is needed to modify the roof. I think that's the only thing I will HAVE to live with. Changing the siding is one of the options we have in mind but that is down the line.
This is how the house looked when I bough it.
So I have spend quite some money updating it. I dont know there is something that irks me but we cant find it.
Thanks Joecaption for the pergola suggestion. I was thinking on adding one but over the lower window on the left to add something to that space in the front where the big flower pot is to make the space a little usable because right now its just sitting empty.
Again Thanks for all your suggestions. If you have more please keep them coming.
