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 covered entry porch is framed by a pair of decorative columns, and opens into a 22′ high formal foyer space. To the right of the foyer is a stairwell, and to the left is a den/guest room with a private full bath. After passing a powder room, you enter a central living space with ceilings that reach 22′. Arched openings between decorative columns look into a family room space, and into a formal dining room which has doors to a sunny atrium space. Next to the dining room are a two–car garage and a laundry room. The large family room has an open floor plan, and is open to the kitchen and breakfast nook. The U-shaped kitchen has a pantry area, and a center island, and it is sunlit from the bay windows at the breakfast nook. Two pairs of glass doors open onto a covered patio, which has a summer kitchen for outdoor cooking. From the family room, a hall leads to two bedrooms, each with its own walk–in closet and vanity sink room, and a shared bath.
Upstairs, the landing opens up to a large loft space, with a curved balcony looking down to the living room and foyer. The rest of the upper floor is devoted to a spacious master suite. The master bedroom is huge, and includes a sitting nook with bay windows. Glass doors at the rear open onto a terrace, and bring in plenty of sunshine. A central dressing area leads to two walk–in closets, and a luxurious master bath. The bath has a linen closet, a private toilet room, two long vanity sinks on either side of the bathroom, a central whirlpool tub, and a large shower.
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.
