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 kitchen has a center island, and there's some space by a corner window for a small breakfast table. A door off the living space opens into a bedroom with a walk–in closet and a full bath. The bathroom can also be accessed by a door off the kitchen. The ceilings are set at 9' on this level.

This two–car garage has a one–bedroom apartment on the upper floor and an exterior shower on the ground floor. It was originally designed with wood shingles on the exterior combined with lattice details, which would be a perfect opportunity to grace the building with a climbing vine of some sort.
