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 house is a fine example of a classic craftsman bungalow, displaying its craftsman detailing in both its handsome exterior and continuing throughout the entire interior of the home. The generous front covered porch spans the entire width of the home, and includes timber posts atop oversized tapered columns, timber frame detailing, and a vaulted ceiling over the entry door. The spacious and open kitchen features a unique breakfast nook with peek–a–boo views to the living room and the stairway.
After entering the home from the covered porch, you see a stairwell straight ahead with a window on the first stair landing, which peeks into the breakfast nook on the other side. A coat closet is directly to the right, and a large opening at the left leads to an open living room. A center fireplace is flanked by windows, with space beneath them for window seats or built–ins. A wide opening leads to a central dining room, which has a pair of doors to the side yard, and is open to the kitchen. Sliding doors on the far side of the dining room lead to a private den, which has a pair of glazed doors that accesses the rear yard. The gourmet kitchen features a large center island, a breakfast nook, and a pantry. A powder room is located across from the pantry, and beyond them is a mudroom with a walk–in coatroom, and a door to the backyard.
As you head upstairs, a window at the lower landing allows sunlight to shine in. The shed dormers on the second floor expand and open up the upper spaces, and bring in lots of natural light to the rooms. The upper landing opens up to a large playroom/reading area that provides access to the master suite, two separate bedrooms and their shared full bath, and a conveniently located laundry room. The master bedroom includes a large walk–in closet, and the master bath features both a bath and a large separate shower within a private toilet room. All the rooms and spaces on this floor have excellent views.

Beautiful wood detailing is featured on both the exterior and the interior of this classic Craftsman–style cottage. Shed dormers on either side provide space on the upper level for a master suite, two additional bedrooms, and a large playroom. The kitchen is quite spacious, and there's a built–in nook off of it that provides views in the corner to both the living room and the foyer.
