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.

You enter a foyer space that is open to the dining room and great room straight ahead. Arched openings between the rooms are framed by 'Doric' style columns, providing views to the double dome ceiling in the dining room. Views to the covered patio are seen through the doors and windows at the rear of the great room, and a stately fireplace on the right warms the two–story space. High windows located close to the great room ceiling emphasize the octagon shaped ceiling, and bring in abundant natural light. To the left of the great room is a large kitchen with a center island, plenty of counter space, and an eating counter. The kitchen is open to a light–filled breakfast nook, which leads to an outdoor cabana with a half–bath and a barbeque area. If you turn right at the entry foyer, you pass a powder room and enter a private media room. To the right of the great room is the master bedroom suite, with two walk–in closets, and doors and windows that look out to the backyard. Upon entering the master bedroom, you find yourself in a central foyer space with a vaulted ceiling. To the right of the foyer is the master bathroom, which has a tub, a separate shower, and a toilet room. To the left of the dining room, there are two more bedrooms with walk–in closets and their own private full bathrooms, a laundry/utility room, and a two–car garage.
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.
