Window Height?

So, here is a big question. Looking at the new sketch of the house, from the front. Do you think the window for the master bedroom (far right) should be the same height as the window in the living room, or the same as the windows in the 2 guest rooms (to the left)? Which looks more balanced? We're actually looking at the current plan as 2 buildings joined together by the entryway/corridor. Look at the 2 different roof heights and see how they're joined by a section of flat roof. Hmm, I'm not sure what I want to do. Let me know what you think.

New Floor Plan Ideas

Well, now that we're done dreaming, fiscal reality is setting in. We need to figure out how to design the house I want, and stay within the budget. It's not easy, so now it's compromise time.

Here are some drawings of the new plans. The style & shape of the house is very similar to the last plan, but the windows are much smaller. We're working on a way to afford taller windows, at least in the living room.
And then here is the new floor plan. It's workable though I want to make the master bathroom larger.And the old floor plan. I really, really like the utility corridor behind the kitchen in this one, and how open the entry is to the kitchen and living room. But, I can't increase the budget either.

And here is a drawing showing how the main entry should look.

Any suggestions?
