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 off of the covered porch, you enter a foyer space with a pair of doors to an office/bedroom on the right. This room has a secondary door to a mudroom, which accesses a laundry room and a two–car garage. If you turn left in the foyer, you pass a stairwell to the basement level on your way to the open living space. The great room straight ahead has a vaulted ceiling, a fireplace in one corner, and sliding glass doors that open onto a covered deck. The deck has a large arched opening with a handrail, and a door that opens into the screened porch. The great room is open to the dining area and spacious kitchen, which has an extended bar for eating, and a center work island. An opening from the kitchen leads to the pantry, the powder room and the mudroom. A small vestibule separates the entrance to the master suite from the dining room. The master bedroom has angled bay windows looking out to the view side, and a door to the screened porch. The master bath features a skylight, a soaking tub, a separate shower, a private toilet room, and two walk–in closets, one of which is much larger and includes a linen closet.
The in–law unit is accessed through the second two–car garage. This unit has a full bath, a vaulted ceiling, a fireplace, and its own private deck.
The optional basement plan has an open recreation room with a fireplace, a bedroom, and a full bathroom, which totals 951 square feet. It also includes two future bedrooms, which makes the basement level total 1475 square feet.

This home has two 2–car garages, one for the main house, and another for the in–law unit, which is located next to the main house. It was originally built on a sloped lot with views at the left side of the house, so views are emphasized on this side with abundant windows, two covered decks and a screened porch. If your site dictates that your views should be oriented to the rear instead of the side, this home has the flexibility to be oriented in this way. The “L” shaped front porch allows this home to be oriented with the decks and screened porch facing the back, which allows the driveway to the garages to face the front.
