How to Update a Split-Level Ranch

During the 1970's, split levels soared in popularity and today there are still plenty of them on the market, but most of us say we don't like the style or want to live in one.

    I have a tri-level split that has the roof's in this configuration, rather than opposite. We also want to add a porch. I can't tell if the windows added to the top are an additional floor, or just a vaulted ceiling to the original??? does anyone know?
