Traditionally, the overall height of a house is determined by measuring from the top of the finished floor on the main level, to the highest peak of the roof.
Raising or lowering the height of the ceilings on one or more floors of a house is often a simple change that can be made by your builder. However, if you want to raise the ceiling of the main floor of a two-story home, there has to be room to add steps to the existing staircase.
We consider a room to be vaulted if the ceiling - whether flat, angled, or curved - is above 10 feet at its highest point. If you prefer that one or more rooms not be vaulted in your new home, this is a very simple change that your builder can make for you.

This cozy bungalow has a compact and efficient floor plan, and it has two entries at the front of the house – a formal entry into a foyer, and a utility entry into a mudroom. The exterior of the home is detailed with a combination of wood siding and wood shingles, with timber columns at the covered porches, and expanded shed dormers at the upper level.
If you enter the home through the formal entry, you enter a foyer space with a coat closet and a powder room. The powder room divides the two entries, and has a secondary door that conveniently opens onto the mudroom. A hallway from the foyer leads you past a den on your right that has a pair of sliding doors for privacy, then to an open stairwell on your left, before coming to a spacious living room. The living room has a center fireplace hearth that is flanked by windows with either window seats or shelves beneath them. A pair of French doors open onto a large covered porch at the rear of the house.
From the living room, a large opening leads to a dining/sitting room, which is open to the kitchen. The kitchen features an arts and crafts signature nook,and a large center island. From the kitchen, a sliding door leads past a pantry to the mudroom, which not only accesses the front powder room and secondary entrance, but also a laundry room, a walk–in closet, and a nook for coats and shoes.
Natural light and views are available as you ascend the stairs to the upper level, where shed dormers add usable space while bringing more light and views. On the upper level, the master bedroom features a large sitting area, a walk–in closet, and a private deck, and the master bath has both a tub and a separate shower. There are two additional bedrooms and a shared full bath on this floor.
