This house could look so much better, just envision it:
- minus the round top window over the front door;
- with much shorter columns (it would be nice if they supported an actual beam);
- and the gable roof dropped down so the fascia lines up with the rest of the house.
Then it would actually shelter the entry point, and not look like a ridiculous afterthought.
