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 essence of country living, the gabled roof lines, wrap–around porch, and richly textured facades create a classic farmhouse feel. Inside, you’ll find a versatile room layout, a true country kitchen, and some dramatic spaces.
The entrance foyer is open to the vaulted ceiling, and is lit from the roof skylight above. To the left is the living room, which opens to the dining room beyond. A porch wraps around the living and dining rooms, creating additional outdoor living space. An arched opening leads from the dining area to the kitchen. Past the kitchen is a mudroom, which is conveniently located off the semi–detached garage. The mudroom holds a pantry, and cupboards for extra storage. A full bath is off this hall, as well as a bedroom.
On the second floor, the balcony is open to the entrance foyer below, and has a nook for a desk. There is a master bedroom, a third bedroom, and a full bath to share. The bedrooms have a 9′ flat ceiling that slope with the roof at the end walls. Closet spaces are tucked under the sloping roofs.
The optional basement holds a laundry space, a large recreation room, a full bath, space for wine storage, a studio space, a cold room, and a mechanical room.

The perfect combination of exterior materials makes this small 3–bedroom house really stand out. And the beautiful wood elements and detailing carry into the interior as well, where the ceilings are set at a comfortable 9' on both the main and upper levels. There's a large recreation room on the lower level, with a wet bar on one end and a studio space on the other, plus a laundry, cold room, mechanical room, and a full bath.
