Should I Kill my Double Peak?

8 years ago

Greeting All:
It's been a while since I've been on but things are still moving along, albeit slowly.

Anyhoo, originally, our home had a room that caused a "bump-out" and the double-peak housed that room. We subsequently made some changes to the inside which eliminated that double peak and brought both rooms to the same exterior plane. Each room has three single windows. The engineer built a double peak facade to keep the front elevation the same but I'm struggling because I think I may want to kill that facade but I don't have a lot of time because the framers will be finished by next week.

My issue is, do the triple window groups look weird without the division of the second peak?

Is there too much space between those groupings when you remove the secondary gable?

Does killing the double peak kill some "mojo" of the house?

Does anyone have any ideas for a better solution, knowing the windows can't be changed and the large gable is built?

Thanks everyone for any input you can provide!!
