Help! New build - style and exterior finishes

last year

I am in the process of building a home. The contract is signed and the elevation has been selected. This is my first home and originally I thought I wanted to go with the black windows/metal roof over porch/white B&B siding look. Now, after staring at the attached rendering for a couple months, I am realizing I have multiple styles going on (colonial with window grids, door, garage door; modern farmhouse with the black windows and metal roof; and possibly Georgian/French colonial/Contemporary?? with the steep hip roof). Rookie mistake. I am now stuck with this elevation (hip roof, gable placement, etc.) and have no vision in terms of how to design it and make it cohesive. Please help!

Looking for advice on:
-Siding (style/color)
-Roofing (material e.g. metal on porch, asphalt on hip)
-Windows (color, grid pattern)
-and anything else you can think of

Note I do like a minimalist clean look which is why I drifted towards the modern farmhouse style, but what do I know….

Thanks so much!
