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.

Exposed wood rafters and truss elements grace the front and rear of this handsome home, complementing the exterior cedar siding and buttressed stone veneer. Exposed timber trusses and wood beams in the living spaces and foyer help create a warm and rustic environment. The unique floor plan includes a courtyard and a master suite that's separated from the rest of the house.
The entry foyer is a room in itself, with a 12'6" ceiling, exposed wood beams, and views to the exterior courtyard straight ahead through a glazed door flanked by two windows. To the left, a small vestibule leads to the master suite, a den with a front–facing view, and a laundry/utility room that the original owners also used as a sewing room. The master bedroom has a bump–out nook with high windows that would be perfect to place the bed, flanked by two vertical windows for additional sunlight. There are also windows on either side of the room, set high on the wall that faces the courtyard, for privacy. The ceiling in this room, like the rest of the non–vaulted rooms in the house, is set at a lofty 10'. The master bath features a large tub set within a corner with windows above, two vanity sinks, a linen closet, a private toilet room with a shower, and a walk–in closet.
To the right of the entry foyer is a warm and open great room with a ceiling that vaults to a dramatic 15'3", and is accented with exposed wood beams and timber trusses. The two timber trusses terminate at the stone fireplace hearth (which is flanked by built–ins) at one end, and what has the appearance of stone pillars on the other. Large glazed openings with wood trim reach the vaulted ceiling, and accent the room beautifully both day and night. This large room has plenty of space for dining, and is open to the kitchen.
The kitchen is designed so that you have views into and through the great room while cooking, with the stove located in a freestanding counter that has a raised section for serving or casual dining. A door from the kitchen leads to stairs down to a mudroom and an oversized two–car garage. The mudroom has room for a bench, cubbies, and a very large closet.
From the great room, a short hallway leads to an activity room/office, two bedrooms and a full bath. Bedroom 1 has its own private full bath and a bay window that looks out to the rear, while bedroom 2 has windows facing the front.

This handsome home has a very unique and well thought out floor plan. The foyer acts like a breezeway between two wings of the house, one of which is occupied almost exclusively by a stunning master suite. Natural wood is featured throughout the interior, but most noticeably in the great room, where exposed wood trusses support a vaulted wood ceiling that sits above a hardwood floor! All the rooms of this one–story house have terrific views, and there's an outdoor courtyard nested between the two wings of the house.
