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.

This 2–car garage has a unique shape, which allows for additional square footage in the garage area. A utility sink and a counter are located in one corner, and a stairway leads to an upper in–law or guest floor. A door at the top of the stairs opens into an open space with abundant windows that provide views and natural light. A small kitchen and a full bath are located near the center of the living space, with two separate rooms on either side. The open floor plan allows for flexibility, so that you can decide how you want to use the spaces. The exterior has wood siding and windows along the upper floor, which gives it a 'cottage–like' appearance.
As you'll see if you compare the photos of the finished Guest House Garage with the floor plans and elevations, the owner decided to move the doorway and stairs to the upper level to a spot between the two garages. The plans we offer match the floor plans and elevations, but you too can modify them to match the photos.
