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 ground level accommodates two cars and has a door that walks out to a side covered porch. The porch has a 10'–high ceiling and a colonnade of four posts that hold up the roof above.
Exterior stairs lead you to the upper apartment space. The entry door opens into the living space, which is open to the kitchen and dining area. A 6'–high wall helps delineate the entry space, and creates a nook for a built–in/entertainment center in the living room. A raised breakfast bar separates the kitchen from the living area, and provides additional eating and counter space. The full bath has a closet/storage space, and a secondary door that directly accesses the bedroom. The ceiling on this level is set at a lofty 9'6" while sloping down at the outer edges to 7' (except at the dormer in the living room, which retains the 9'6" ceiling height).
