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.

After coming in from the covered piazza, you enter a foyer space with a coat closet and an open stairwell. To the left of the front door there is a study or guest suite with a walk–in closet and a view through tall windows to the front of the house, and full bath that doubles as a guest powder room. If you turn right upon entering the house, you enter an open family room with a large central fireplace and optional built–ins on either side of it. This gathering area is open to both the kitchen and the dining room. The kitchen features a center island for additional workspace, and a raised eating or serving bar that divides the kitchen from the dining room. Off the dining room there is a small room for a home office, and two doors that open onto a private outdoor patio space.
The upper loft area is naturally lit from the windows in the stairwell and the glazed door that opens onto the upper piazza. The master suite has a pair of doors that open on to the upper piazza, and the master bath features a private toilet room, both a tub and a separate shower, two sinks, and a spacious walk–in closet. There's a conveniently located laundry room, a linen closet, a full bath, and two additional bedrooms with walk–in closets located on this floor.
This house plan also comes with drawings for a detached two–car garage.
