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.

Cottage Revival is featured in architect Michaela Mahady’s new book, “Welcoming Home”. You can find more information about the book and about purchasing the book at Amazon.com if you click on the book cover.
Designed by Deb Kees and Dale Mulfinger of SALA Architects, Cottage Revival was inspired by modest late nineteenth century homes in a mid–western river town. The interior space has an open plan with a central kitchen at the heart of the home, and an upper floor with three bedrooms and two baths that is nestled under the roof. There is also abundant outdoor living, which occurs at the front wrap–around porch, and the rear screened porch.
The covered entry porch, which has room for outdoor furniture, invites you into this cozy home. The entry foyer, which has a stairway, leads to an open dining and living space. In the dining room and open kitchen, there are exposed wood beams at the ceiling which match the wood floors and wood kitchen countertop, creating a feeling of warmth through thoughtful design. The kitchen features a center island with a sink, and a high counter for eating. An away room is located next to the dining room, which would make an ideal office as well. A screened porch is located off of the kitchen, making it convenient to dine there in warmer weather. A fireplace hearth is located in the center of the living room wall, and is flanked by built–ins. From the dining room space, a hallway leads to a powder room, a laundry area, and a mudroom space, which has a door to a two–car garage, and another door to the front porch.
On the upstairs level, there are two bedrooms, a full bath, and a master suite, which all sit under the slopes of the roof. The master bath is large enough to have a tub and a separate shower.
This home comes with a plan for an unfinished basement. If you choose to build the basement level, the foundation plan is designed for a future recreation room, office, full bath, and storage rooms.

While called a cottage, the style is closer to the classic farmhouse. Based on a simple rectangle, with straight walls rising from the ground to the eaves, this house was destined to be handsome and not fussy, employing fine materials and good workmanship. The inside also features a lot of wood detailing, including exposed beams and high wainscoting. This house has an away room at the front, a screened porch at the rear, and three bedrooms on the upper level. The plans come with either an attached 2–car garage, or without the garage.
