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 compact and charming three–bedroom house features many craftsman–like details. The exterior is composed of cedar shingles and trim pieces, wood brackets at the roof, exposed roof rafters, and abundant windows on all four sides of the house.
After you enter the foyer, there's a coat closet just to your left, along with a door to a utility/laundry room. As you enter the main living space, you pass a full bath that doubles as a guest powder room, and the door to bedroom 1. This room has windows on two walls, with views to the front and side of the house. After passing the stairs to the upper level you enter the open living area. The living room, dining space, and kitchen are wrapped with windows for views in three directions. A large fireplace in the living room faces all three spaces. Double glazed doors off the kitchen/dining area open to the back yard.
At the top of the stairs there's a large sitting area that's also wrapped with windows, and there's a charming built–in window seat beneath two of them. Both bedrooms also enjoy lots of light and views, and they share a full bath next to the sitting area.

This compact 3–bedroom house was originally designed as a vacation home. The exterior features Craftsman detailing and exposed wood at the eaves, and the homeowners chose cedar shingles for the outer walls. There are great views to the rear and sides from both levels of the house, and a large fireplace warms all the primary living spaces.
