Help! Need your advice on home exterior!

We have some extra room in our budget to add stone, and our contractor thinks we should put it on all the sides of the house that face the street (except for the main part of the house...see sketch below)

And while I think this looks great from the front, I think it looks silly from the side (AKA the main drive up to the house)

Doesn't it look "unfinished" without stone connecting the two sections of stone??

And since we don't have enough money to put stone everywhere along the bottom of the house, I proposed the next photo:

And here it is from the front:

Thoughts? Better? Worse? Any alternative ideas? No stone? Just stone on the garage? Thoughts on vertical siding on the garage to break up that long wall? Any advice is appreciated! Thanks!
