Looking for a facelift. Love the bungalow and cottage style. Help!

Your hipped roof dominates the view so you might thing of adding some dormers to break up the expanse. I think the shutters are terrific, but you might think of painting them. Cottage can certainly be added with landscaping - lots of it! Maybe a white picket fence, awesome gate and loose stands of perennial flowers.

Some carriage lights, dormers (if you can afford them) and a pergola/trellis to connect the home with the outdoors. The problem as it appears in the picture is that the house has relatively low walls and a vast expanse of roof, making it look squat. If you break up the house a little, you add some verticality. The nice long windows help, but it would be great if you could get some more indoor/outdoor connection to soften it and break up that roof a bit.
