ceiling heights - 9 or 10 feet?
I'm trying to convince my hubby to do 10 ft ceilings in our new house and thought I'd turn to you all for some advice :) We don't have a plan yet, but hopefully our new architect will have a preliminary drawing next week (thanks gaonmymind!)
I love the shingle style & also southern vernacular type homes with tons of natural light and transom windows. However, we live in central IL and NO houses here have 10 ft ceilings. Most have basic vaults or 8ft. Hubby thinks it's ridiculous to even contemplate 10 ft ceilings!
I'd be willing to compromise and go with 9ft (but will probably do vaulted in great room) but I'm concerned how transoms will look with 9ft ceilings. Does anyone have any pics to share of their 9 ft ceilings w/transoms?
Dh is concerned about cost but our architect thinks it will only be about $5-6k to go from 9ft to 10ft. To me, that seems reasonable to spend money on something that will dramatically change the look of the whole house.
what do you all think? Thanks in advance!
