Architecture/Changing the exterior look of a round house


Changing look of a round house
Changing look of a rou  
We are considering buying a round house with attached 2 car garage. No, we don't like the look of the house but we love the location. Is there anything that can be done to change the look without getting into alot of expense of removing exterior walls or changing roof pitch? I've attached a picture of the house. Thanks, Shelly

If the house is round and you want it to be a different shape you will necessarily incur some substantial construction cost to rebuild it.

If it is only the outside elevations that you do not like then you might obscure them with well placed trees.

Due to life safety concerns regarding some aspects of construction I may not be able to help with all questions. I do not answer structural specification questions without a site visit.
