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 classic Victorian is reminiscent of the Queen Anne style with a wrap–around porch, bay windows, trim details, and corner turrets with conical roofs. Bay windows line the octagon shaped turrets and rooms, which bring in plenty of sunlight, and a variety of outside views.
As you come off the covered wrap–around porch, you enter a small foyer with a living room to the left, and a dining room to the right. The dining room has a window seat, and three bay windows that mimic the octagon shaped rooms found throughout the house. A door from the dining room leads to a bright kitchen with a center island. The kitchen is open to a breakfast/family room, which has an octagon shaped ceiling, and three bay windows. From here, a small hall leads to a stairwell, a door to a laundry room and a garage, and to a living room. The living room features a fireplace, and an octagon shaped seating area, with 180 degree views to the outside porch. A coat closet and a half bath are located across from the living area.
Upstairs there is a master bedroom suite with an octagon shaped sitting area that is located above the downstairs sitting room. The five bay windows in this space fill the bedroom with views and sunlight. A soaking tub sits in one corner, and a fireplace, which is located next to it, provides warmth to the room. A door next to the soaking tub leads to the master bath and walk–in closet.
The two–car garage is oversized, and has room for a shop space. There is a small storage space, which can hold mechanical equipment, and a door that leads to a backyard porch. A stairwell in the garage leads to an upper unfinished bonus room, which may be used for storage. The room is spacious, and may be finished in the future to be used as a guest room or office space.

On the main level, the living room extends out to a sitting area with five windowed walls; the dining room has a bumped out bay on one outer wall and a window seat on another; and a windowed bay in the breakfast nook is topped by an octagonal ceiling. And on the upper level, the master bedroom has a sitting area that matches the sitting area below it in the living room, and bedroom 2 matches the dining room below it. This house also has a covered porch that wraps all the way around the front to the rear.
