I think you should raise contrast/shading on the roof tiles to make them look less flat, especially compared with the edges of the roof. I like your wood texture and colors, only thing that seems off to me is the roof.

do you mean I should shade every tile a little lighter or only the upper tiles?

The most common problem on a house of this style is the thickness of the posts that support it, i did a crappy edit to show that with a more extreme lighting than you picture to show it off more.  Also the colours of brown for the door are kinda gross (unless you are trying to follow a very specific pallette) so i just colour balanced them to be more red. *note i just opened up the window and added curtains for more interest (i just thought it would look more fun).  Other than those things and what other people said it looks great. :crazy:
Edit:
I dont get it done, but when i do its not done.

nice work on the door especially on the window with the curtains it looks way better now!

I made the shadows more wider and added extra shading on the roof tiles not to forget the chimney(How could I have forgotten that :huh: )

well here it is!

Im sorry to be nitpicky but now that i look at it the colous i feel would look the best if the wood for the door and window and for the beams were the same.  Other than that great work  :y: :crazy:

I took a closer look at the roof and got a little confused about the lightsource. Anyway, i did a very rough edit with a little more contrast, but i think you might also consider just using only plain colored roof tiles with dark outlines like the one in the middle.
