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.

In the entry foyer, there is an open stairwell centrally located, with a formal dining room to the right and an office/guest room to the left. A pair of French doors separates the dining room from the kitchen beyond. Straight ahead of the foyer is an open great room with a fireplace in one corner, and a light filled nook, which may be used for casual dining. A door from the great room leads to a covered porch, which extends the living area on warm days and nights. A breakfast bar separates the great room from the U–shaped kitchen, which is efficiently designed and accommodates a desk and a pantry in either corner. From the kitchen, a small hall leads to a powder room, a laundry room, and a two–car garage with a shop/storage area. From the great room, there is a door to the master bedroom suite, which has ceilings that slope to a 10′ flat ceiling. A door from the master bedroom leads to the covered entry porch for additional convenience and access. The master bath has a walk–in closet, a Jacuzzi tub, a separate shower, and a private toilet room.
After coming to the upper floor, there is a sitting nook with plenty of light from the large picture window, which opens up to an open recreation room with a vaulted ceiling. There are two additional bedrooms, with a shared full bath that is located between the two bedrooms.
These plans include 3 foundation options – for a slab, a crawlspace, and a basement.
