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.

The front porch, which has plenty of room for chairs to enjoy the outdoors, brings you to a foyer that is open to the dining room to the right. To the left there is a pair of doors that leads to a study, which has a door to a full bathroom. As you walk through the foyer, you pass a coat closet and a small vestibule with a powder room, and a guest room/second bedroom that accesses the full bathroom with a secondary door. Straight ahead of the foyer is the great room, which has 14′ high ceilings. It has a fireplace and built–ins on one wall, and is open to the kitchen and breakfast nook. The great room and breakfast nook each have a door to the deck, and a wall of windows that looks out to the rear brings in natural light to the open rooms. The kitchen island located in the center has a sink, providing more counter space at the walls, and has a counter for eating. From the kitchen a small hall leads to a master bedroom suite, a mudroom, a laundry room, and a three–car garage. The master bedroom has vaulted ceilings and sliding glass doors that open onto the covered deck at the rear. The master bath has a private toilet room, a tub, a separate shower, and ‘his’ and ‘her’ walk–in closets.

This attractive one–story home offers terrific views to the rear. Windows topped by multi–paned transoms fill the rear walls of the great room, the breakfast nook, the master bedroom, and a guest room. The great room ceiling is set at a lofty 14′, allowing for another line of windows higher up. The master suite is quite spacious, and on the other side of the house there’s a guest room and a study large enough to be another bedroom that share a full bath. Stone veneer complements the wood details and stucco finish at the exterior.
