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 strikingly attractive two–car garage is faced with cedar wood siding, giving the simple structure a universal appeal. It has a large upper studio space that was designed for the original client to suit his needs for a home–based business, but you may of course modify this area to suit your specific needs. The upper floor currently features a half bath, and it has six skylights, which flood the room with natural light.
The large shed dormers on both sides of the garage provide extra usable space, and clerestory windows to further illuminate the second floor. A closet and a mechanical room on the ground floor provide additional storage space.

Garages are not usually so good looking! This handsome 2–car garage features living space in the upper level, expanded by the use of shed dormers. The original client of the architect used the upper space for business, with two small offices off of a large open studio space, but you could of course have a full apartment in the more than 900sf of usable space that includes great front and rear views along with six skylights in the ceiling.
