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 home has exquisite French doors with an arched transom that accents the covered entrance. Along with the arched windows and 'Spanish' tile roof, this home evokes palm trees and sunshine.
After coming off of the covered entry, you enter a two–story foyer space that is octagonal in shape. To the right of the foyer are a bedroom with a bay window and a private full bath, a stairwell, and a powder room. To the left is a small hall that leads to a two–car garage and a laundry/utility room. Straight ahead is a spacious living room with a 14' high coffered ceiling, and sliding glass doors to a covered patio. The living room has a bar tucked in one corner, and has views to the formal dining room and family room. A kitchen with an eating counter and a breakfast nook, is centrally located between the family room and dining room. To the left of the living room is a master bedroom suite, which has two walk–in closets and a luxurious master bath. The master bath features a toilet room, a tub, and a separate shower.
The upstairs landing opens to a larger nook that looks down at the foyer below. Two more bedrooms are located on the upper floor, each with walk–in closets and its own private full bathroom.
The plans for this home call for reinforced concrete block exterior walls. If you plan to construct this house with any other exterior wall system, we highly recommend that you purchase the plans in electronic format.

This is a Mediterranean–style house with a unique and very attractive design. Multiple low–pitched roof sections are covered in tile, and a two–story element that protrudes from the house holds bedroom suites on each level. Ceiling heights vary throughout the interior on the main level – 22' in the foyer; 15' in the living room; 14' in the family room; 13' in the master bedroom; 12' in the kitchen; and nearly 11' in the master bath, formal dining room, and bedroom 2. Two more bedroom suites are located on the upper level.
