I am not sure exactly what you are asking. Do you have pictures? BTW - Depending on where you are you may need to separate the garage from the office with a fire rated wall based on building code.

I want to convert my butterfly roof to a conventional roof. My idea is either one long slope ... or a traditio

Why would you want to change the entire roofline? That's a major and costly renovation that will change the entire character of your home, but not increase it's value...
...in fact, if you have an MCM home (Which is what it sounds like) doing so will actually decrease it's value.

Perhaps you'd be better off selling and buying some other house that's better suited to your tastes.

What exactly is your concern with the butterfly roof? Is it waterproofing, aesthetics, heat gain etc..?
If it is aethetics, I would have to agree with bepsf above. If it is other than aethetics - it might be worthwhile to meet with an architect at the house and evaluate with you the options available.
Good luck.

Garage Door Info - Mike, beautiful design! I love your use of the garage doors and the lighting. Can you tell me who the manufacture of the doors is? Also, can you give me the width of the door and the model no.? Thanks in advance! Best, Ron Acker www.sydney-east.com.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Modern Iconography: The Butterfly Roof
The classic butterfly roof - it's even more dramatic at night.
Another excellent way to put glass garage doors to good use for interiors is to turn swimming pools or courtyards into focal points. In this situation, gorgeous views of the pool are visible from almost every common area of the house. This is also a dream for entertainment-savvy homeowners; with the doors raised on a beautiful night, the entire house becomes one gigantic, open, airy living room. It may also be wise to get yourself some flyswatters and Raid. Just hide them under your pretty furniture so as not to spoil the mood.
Susan Stieglitz added this to Butterfly Roof
This is an example of a modern butterfly roof. The lines of the structure are long and low, characteristic of modern design.

I like the roof and the screen wall to the right. I like the windows for the back of the house, but overall there are too many windows. To me, a mid century modern house should be more private and textured from the front, with the "window wall" on the back.
