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 two–story foyer space with an open stairwell to the left, and a view of the upper balcony above. To the right is a formal dining room, which has an opening to a butler’s pantry. As you go towards the great room straight ahead, you pass a powder room on the right. The great room has a vaulted two–story ceiling, and a fireplace flanked by built–ins. Windows look out to the backyard, and a glazed door walks out to a deck. The great room is open to the kitchen, which has a large center island with a raised eating counter, and a light–filled breakfast nook with views to the rear. From the kitchen, an opening accesses a rear hallway, which leads to a pantry, a laundry room, a coat closet, and a two–car garage. On the other side of the great room is the master suite. The master bedroom has a tray ceiling, and its own private access to the rear deck. The master bath has two vanity sinks, a private toilet, a tub, and a separate shower. From the master bath, you access the large walk–in closet.
After going up to the second floor, you find yourself on a balcony that looks down to the foyer and great room spaces. At the landing, a door on the left opens into attic storage space, and the door straight ahead opens into a bedroom suite, which has its own private full bath and walk–in closet. On the other side of the balcony, a small hall leads to two more bedrooms, a full bath, and a large bonus/recreation room, which has a dormer for additional sunlight and space.

This home was originally designed with a combination of wood shingles, wood siding, and wood trim on the exterior. The plans come with three slightly different front elevations for you to choose from, depending on your preferences. The great room has a 2–story ceiling, views of and access to a large deck at the rear of the house, and a fireplace that can also be enjoyed from the kitchen. The master suite is on the main level, and upstairs there are three more bedrooms, a large “bonus” room above the garage, and an attic storage space.
