Awkward Mansard and entry help!

2 months ago

We've just purchased this home, with what I believe is a Mansard roof. The layout is funky with the entrance on the middle floor around the side through the kitchen🤪. We're planning on making the main entrance on the ground floor where the window is. I think we can do some nice columns where the deck posts are too make it look like a formal entry. However the roof really bothers me lol. It just doesn't seem attractive. I'm thinking about how to update the look and avoid the flat roof because we live in a rainy area. What do you think about adding framing to turn it into a barn style roof? We need to reroof anyway. I'm hoping we can diy a lot as my husband has experience. Other ideas?
