Design Dilemma

I have posted a couple of times about our addition that we are completing. We have not begun yet, so I have another question.
curently our existing roof line is 15 feet wide. So if the pic below was the back of the house we would be adding on coming straight off. So the current width is 15 ft but we would like to go out to 20 ft which would change the pitch on teh new addition. The lenght of the room will be 30 feet. Would we save a ton of money if we just kept the room at 15x30 or would it not make that much of a difference to go out to 20 ft? Hope this makes sense.

A room 15 feet by 30 feet, seems long and narrow to me. Have you spoken to an architect about this? I think it would be money well spent and s/he might be able to give estimates as well as options.

Who is doing the floor plan and items needed to pull the permit? Whoever that is should be able to show you an elevation so you can see.
