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 stately Mediterranean–style home embodies luxury living at its very finest. The elegant facade – with its three round bumped–out areas with tall windows in the study, dining room, and master bedroom; 1″–thick concrete stucco with a skip trowel textured finish; and its numerous and diverse tile–clad roof sections – lets you know immediately that you’re about to enter a truly unique and stunning home. This feeling is reinforced – and then amplified – as you enter and then walk through the house.
From the covered entry, you step into a large foyer space with a ceiling that soars to 25′ with a dome in the center! Double doors just to your right open into a study that features a 15′ ceiling, built–ins along one wall, and a half–round space with three floor to ceiling windows that projects out from the front of the house. Just beyond the study doors is a curving staircase that brings you to the upper level.
To the left off the foyer, a tall arched opening supported by 10’–tall, 16″–thick columns with Tuscan caps frames the formal dining room. There’s a barrel vault ceiling in this room, and just like the study, a rounded space with a trio of windows projects from the house. Straight ahead from the front door you pass beneath another tall arched opening that brings you to the family room. On the way, you pass a powder room on your left, and an opening to a wet bar that faces the family room on your right.
The family room features a lofty 12′ ceiling, a large fireplace in the corner, and built–ins along one wall. Tall pictures windows with transoms above them at the far end of the room look out to a covered patio space with a gas cooking area for outdoor dining. An arched opening provides access to the gourmet kitchen, which also has a 12′ ceiling. This room features a center island, a large walk–in pantry, and a butler’s area with a sink between it and the dining room.
At the far end of the kitchen there’s an angled peninsula whose three sides face the family room, the rear patio, and a breakfast nook with a wall of windows facing to the rear. The inner portion has a pair of sinks, while the outer area is raised for serving or casual dining. An opening next to the nook leads to another powder room, a laundry room, a second stairway to the upper level, and the 3–car garage.
The right side of the house is devoted to the master suite and a second bedroom with a walk–in closet and a full bath. The master bedroom features a 12′ tray ceiling, a large curved sitting area surrounded by windows, and a fireplace. A door near the sitting area accesses the covered patio at the rear of the house, and the opposite wall has two windows flanking the bed area. The area surrounding the tub in the master bath rises to an astonishing 23′, while the tub itself sits beneath a trio of windows. The master bath also features two completely separated sinks, a private toilet, and an extra–large shower. Double doors open to a huge walk–in closet, off of which is placed a small study/office space with a closet and windows facing front and rear. At the top of the curved stairs to the upper level there’s a huge game room with a 12′ ceiling and a wet bar in the corner. Radiating off of the game room are bedrooms 3 and 4 (each with its own walk–in closet and full bath), a large attic space for storage, and an open balcony positioned above the rear patio on the main level.
Due to licensing agreements, this home may not be built within a 50–mile radius of the zip code 75032 in Texas.

- What is bond paper?
Bond paperPrinters stopped using blue ink many years ago - it was very difficult to read, and the fumes were dangerous to inhale. So what we used to refer to as blueprints are now called bond copies (black ink printed on white bond paper).
- 5-Set Construction or Bid Set
5-Set Construction or Bid SetIf you are building in an area that requires very few copies to construct a house, all you might need is the 5-Set Package. It's also best for folks wanting either a quick bid process, or bids from more than one builder. In either case, you can always purchase more bond copies later on if you need them, or upgrade to a Mylar, PDF or CAD version (your original cost will be deducted from the price of the upgrade). Bond copies cannot be duplicated, but they come with a formal Copyright License that gives you the legal right to construct the house, and to modify the plans beforehand to suit your needs. If allowed in your area, modifications can be "marked up" (some people refer it as "red-lining") right on the plans.
- What is mylar?
MylarVellum paper is no longer being manufactured, so we've switched to a vastly superior product called Mylar. These semi-transparent sheets are actually a thin-film composite that was designed for plan modification, using a simple electric eraser. The ink that is printed on them sits on the surface (instead of sinking into a coated vellum sheet), so lines and dimensions can be erased and redrawn quite easily by any design professional.
- Plans printed on Mylar
Plans printed on MylarIf you - like the vast majority of our other customers - intend to modify the plans before construction, and you are building in an area where plans can't simply be "marked up" with a red pen, the Mylar copy is definitely what you should order (unless of course you prefer the PDF version). After the changes have been made to this "master" copy, you or your builder can then print as many copies as you need, whenever you need them, on regular bond paper. That way everyone - you, your builder, his or her subcontractors, local permit officials, and your lender - will have the final version of the plans to work with. Even though they cost a bit more initially, they will definitely save you time and money later on. Mylar copies come with a formal Copyright Release giving you the legal right to modify them in any way you wish, and to make as many copies of the plans as you need to successfully build one house. Mylar copies are shipped with a free bond copy of the plans, so that you have something to look over and mark up before making final decisions about the changes you want made to the "master" set.
- What are PDF electronic files?
PDF electronic filesThe acronym PDF stands for Portable Document Format. These are electronic files that can be emailed from computer to computer. You can open them on your own computer as well as email them to others, and the Copyright Release you receive with them allows you to make as many copies as you need before and after modifications are made.
- Plans in PDF format
Plans in PDF formatTHE most popular way to purchase plans these days is in PDF format. It's no more expensive than the Mylar version, plus you save $30 in shipping fees because the plans are emailed to you. But the biggest reason why they're so popular is because they can be passed along to others via email. The builder can zip them to their sub-contractors, truss manufacturers, and (if needed) an engineer; you can open them on your own computer to view at your home or office; and you can zip them to your builder (or builders), lender, and anyone needing to approve the plans before construction. If you'd still like to make modifications on Mylar sheets, your Copyright Release allows you (or your builder) to do this locally, and you'll only need to print a handful of the most important sheets.
- What are CAD files?
CAD filesThe acronym CAD stands for Computer-Aided Design. Design software from AutoCAD and numerous other companies - ArchiCAD, SoftPlan, VectorWorks, etc. - is used to draw plans in a format (DWG - short for drawing) that can be easily manipulated and modified on a computer. This can speed up the process of modification dramatically - for example, a change in one part of the plans creates an automatic change throughout the drawings -- potentially saving the person making the changes quite a bit of time, and thus saving you quite a bit of money!
- Plans in CAD format
Plans in CAD formatPlans purchased in this electronic format are emailed, so you get them right away, and there's no shipping fee. Like the Mylar and PDF options, these plans come with a formal Copyright Release giving you the legal right to modify them in any way you wish, and to make as many copies of the plans as you need to successfully build one house. If the changes you wish to make to our plans are rather extensive, or structural in nature (including changing exterior wall systems), purchasing the plans in CAD format will almost certainly be your best option. Design professionals charge by the hour, and making changes to electronic files is much faster and easier than erasing and redrawing lines and dimensions on a Mylar copy. So purchasing an electronic version of the plans can save you both time and money. The files you receive will provide the drawings in at least two formats: .DWG files that will enable the person modifying your plans to do so using AutoCAD software (the standard for the entire construction and engineering communities); and .PDF files that will enable you to view the plans on your home or office computer. If the plans were originally drawn with a design software program other than AutoCAD (eg. SoftPlan, ArchiCAD, VectorWorks, etc.), this will be noted at the end of the Description of this house, and the email will include these files along with the .DWG and .PDF formats.
