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.

The front entry has a porte–cochere, providing a covered space for parking the car as you go in and out of the house. A covered entry framed by ornamental columns welcomes you up the entry steps. The large foyer space has a dramatic 17' high ceiling, and columns at the corners, which frame the space and divide it from the hallway straight ahead. The formal living room beyond the hallway has a stately fireplace, a tray ceiling that reaches 19', and windows and doors that look out to the covered patio at the rear.
If you turn left at the entry hallway, you pass another hall that leads to three bedroom suites, each with its own walk–in closet, tray ceiling, and full bath. Further down this hallway you come to a laundry/utility room, and then to a three–car garage. A central foyer accesses the three bedrooms, and could be used as a sitting room or a library space. Bedroom 2 (labeled the VIP Bedroom on the floor plans) has a larger walk–in closet, and unlike the other two bedrooms, its bathroom features two vanity sinks, a whirlpool tub, a separate shower, and a bidet next to the toilet.
Where the entry hallway meets this hallway to the three bedroom suites, there are two vestibules with display niches on either side of a powder room. The second vestibule leads to the formal dining room, which has tray ceilings that reach 13' and a door to a butler's pantry between it and the kitchen. The gourmet kitchen is large enough to accommodate two refrigerators, two ovens, a six–burner stove, and a large center island with a prep sink. A 42" high eating counter divides the kitchen from the family room. The family room has tray ceilings that reach 15', a fireplace that keeps the room cozy and warm, and a pair of glazed doors that walk out to a large covered patio. An outdoor kitchen on the patio is perfect for outdoor cooking and entertaining.
The family room and kitchen are both open to a sunny breakfast nook, which has angled walls with windows that look out to the rear. The curved wall next to the breakfast nook holds a wet bar, which is open to the formal living room for easy access. From the family room, a small vestibule leads to a guest bedroom, which features angled windows and a pair of glazed doors that open to the rear, and a full cabana bath.
If you turn right at the entry hallway, you enter another foyer space with a circular tray ceiling above. This foyer provides access to a study, on your right, and the luxurious master suite. The suite has tray ceilings in all of the main rooms that rise to 15', including the master bath area. The master bath has a private toilet room with a bidet, two vanity sinks, a whirlpool tub, and a separate shower. A hallway between the bedroom and bath provides access to two large walk–in closets and an exercise area. The master bedroom has a sitting area at the rear, with angled windows for maximum sunlight and views, and a pair of glazed doors that open onto the covered patio.
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.
