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.

An 8'–wide covered porch wraps around three sides of this country style home. It features a unique double gable at the front, wooden shutters flanking multi–paned windows, and beautiful wood detailing. As you step into the foyer there's a coat closet and stairs to the upper level, along with access to a formal dining room on the right and a guest room/study on the left. The dining room – like all the rooms on the main level – has a 9' ceiling, a view to and through the front porch, and swinging French doors that open to the kitchen.
The great room is open to the kitchen, separated only by a peninsula counter with a raised bar for casual eating or serving. There's a fireplace in one corner that can be enjoyed from the kitchen, and in the opposite corner next to the kitchen there's a sunny breakfast nook in a bumped–out bay. The U–shaped kitchen has room for a center island, a window over the sinks, a built–in desk, and a pantry. A hallway off the kitchen leads past a powder room and a laundry room before reaching a two–car garage with room for a shop or extra storage.
Upstairs, one side is devoted to the master suite while the other has two bedrooms. The master bedroom has a tray ceiling that rises to 10', a sitting area with a large window, and two more windows for a side view. The master bath has two sinks, both a large tub and a separate shower, a private toilet, and a walk–in closet. One end of the upper loft area has a reading area with a vaulted ceiling and bookshelves on either side of a large window, while the other has a full bath that's shared by the two bedrooms. Both these bedrooms have trayed ceilings as well, rising to 9' in the center, and a view to either the front or the rear.
The plans come with three different foundation options: a slab, a crawlspace, and an unfinished basement.

This house was designed for a family that likes to spend a lot of time outdoors. A wide covered porch spans the entire front of the house, wraps around the entire side, and then around the great room. There are three bedrooms on the upper level, and a fourth on the main level that would work just as well as an office or study.
