Should I Change the Roofline on My New House?

Good Questions

Q: I hate the facade of my 'new" home. We have done a lot of remodeling on the inside. Now we are running out of money and I need ideas on how to make this facade more attractive... My initial idea was to remove the roofline that goes all the way to the ground and add another window there, but that requires a permit and an architect to draw the plans and the work is costly.

Should I just remove the roofline off and not add another window? Or should I just embrace the style? Of course, painting and removing the shutters and planter are in my plans. P.S. I love Mid Century Modern style and would love to go in that direction.
