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 four–bedroom home is clad with wood cedar shingles and siding. The floor plan is efficient and simple, providing maximum wall space for windows and natural ventilation.
The front entry porch is framed with two pairs of tapered "Doric" wood columns. After entering the generous foyer, a nook next to a coat closet provides space for a bench, and to the right are a powder room and a stairwell. Just before a door to the screened porch straight ahead, you turn left to enter an open living/hearth room, with a central fireplace to the right and a dining area to the left. Nooks in the dining room create a window niche, and an opportunity to have built–in cabinetry. The room is open to the breakfast room and kitchen, which features a center island with a counter for eating. From the kitchen there is a mud hall, which leads to a laundry room, a mudroom, and a three–car garage.
After coming up the stairs, the master bedroom suite is the first door off of the landing. The master bedroom ceiling slopes up to an 11' flat ceiling, and the master bath has both a shower and a tub. As you walk down the hall you pass two bedrooms, which share a full bath, a fourth bedroom, and another full bath. All four bedrooms feature walk–in closets, providing plenty of storage space. After passing the fourth bedroom, there is a large family room and study, which are built over the garage.
If you choose to finish the lower basement level, a floor plan is provided with a mechanical/storage room, and future family room, bathroom and fifth bedroom.
