Help with a '60s ranch front porch

Hi all, I need to replace the front porch on my 1960s ranch-style home. The wood is rotting out and needs to be completely redone. Spouse wants to tear down the whole thing (but leave the small roof that extends out about 5 feet) and put in a wider deck. I'm on board with that, to an extent, but having a hard time imagining how that could be done attractively. Can anyone help or offer suggestions?

The oval-windowed front door will also be going--it will be replaced with a more modern door with storm door over it.

Please ignore the appearance of two-tone paint--it's all one solid bright yellow with white trim.
