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.

After entering into the foyer, you’re greeted with a view to the impressive stone fireplace in the great room. Columns support the loft above the entry, and frame the view to the great room. As you enter the great room, the ceilings vault above, allowing the stone of the fireplace to go up the full two stories. The great room walls angle at the fireplace, which create different views through the bay of windows that flank the fireplace. The room is open to the dining room and the kitchen beyond. An island sits in the center of the kitchen, and a door next to the kitchen leads to a screened–in porch. To the left of the entry is a hallway that leads to a half bath, a laundry room, and a stairway to the garage and lower floor. To the right of the entry are a master bedroom suite, another bedroom and a full bath. The master bedroom has a door to an outdoor deck that wraps around the back of the house, and the bath features a whirlpool tub, a separate shower, and a separate toilet room.
From the main level, a curved stairwell leads to an optional upper loft. It is open to the great room below, and has a pair of doors that leads to an outdoor deck that’s located above the front entry. The loft is 350 square feet and increases the square footage of the house to 2670 S.F.
If you choose to build the lower level, you pass the garage mid–level as you go downstairs. On the lower level there is an open recreation room in the center, with windows and a door to the exterior. There is a bar counter and sink, as well as an under counter refrigerator, eliminating the need to go upstairs. There is also a full bath, a storage closet, a workroom and another bedroom on this level.

Cultured stone is used throughout the exterior of this house, and contrasts nicely with the wood siding. Large stone pillars frame the covered entry, and ties in nicely with the prominent stone chimney that rises from the rear. The living spaces are set at a 45–degree angle to the bedroom suites. This means the great room has a corner facing the rear, which is filled by a large stone fireplace. The walls on either side rise to two stories, and are filled with windows on each level. There's a screened porch off the kitchen and dining room at the rear, next to a deck that wraps around the great room and ends at the master bedroom.
