Would You Vault this?
My wife and I have gone back and forth several times about the vault above the living room and dinning area in the house we had designed. You guys have such great input that we would love to hear your thoughts. We like craftsman style, I don't see many high vaulted ceilings but really liked the idea of building the box beams to make the area unique. We wonder about the proportions of the room and whether we should just square the ceiling off at 13' or even 8'... We have concerns about the area seeming tall and empty, cold, or even disproportionate instead of cozy and welcoming. I'll post the section next, let me know if I can give any other information that would help you give feedback. Thanks so much everyone!
