Best Roof Styles: How to Build a Cost Effective Home in Raleigh

Posted by Penny Hull on Tue, Mar 14, 2017 @ 12:03 PM

Best Roof Styles for Raleigh New Custom Homes

If there’s a certain type of roof you like, ask your custom builder how it can work with the floor plan you have in mind. Roof style options for Raleigh new custom homes vary widely, and can often be modified to fit the interior floor plan and exterior style you have in mind.

How to Keep Costs Down with Roofing Options

The more complex the roof, the higher the cost. But when you determine the roof line for your new custom home, be aware that it isn’t like flooring, cabinets or even walls that you can update later. The roofline and architectural design extremely difficult to revise once your new home is built - so find the best fit before you start.

Below are a few basic key terms and home building facts that can help you understand what certain floor plans cost more to build.

Raleigh New Home Cost | Roof Pitch Explained

Roof Pitch

The "pitch" of a roof is the steepness. Roof pitch, or angle of steepness, is calculated by the number of inches it rises for every 12 inches it extends.

An 8/12 roof climbs 8 inches in height for every 12 inches in width. Here is an example photo of a 12/12 roof pitch:

Raleigh New Home Cost | Roof Pitch Explained

In general, the shallower the roof pitch, the lower the cost.  Construction of a simpler, lower roofline can entail less roofing, less framing materials and less framing labor both for the roofing as well as the roof’s support system.

But, some level of steepness and complexity of roofline can be what makes the difference between fantastic curb appeal, and "just another box".  

For example, lower cost homes are often constructed with a simpler 4:12 or 5:12 roof pitch. However, this can limit attic space, particularly on a smaller home.

(The Dahlberg, below, has a 10/12 main roof pitch - but due to the size of this one story home, it can appear less steep 

Raleigh New Home Cost | Roof Pitch Explained

 

Roof Gables, Hips, and Valleys

The number of gables, hips, and valleys in a roof can affect aesthetic appeal as well as cost.

  • A gable is a triangular section of wall formed by the intersection of two sections of roof.
  • A hip is where two rooflines meet at the top. This example shows six different hips on the front of the home, counting the small dormer window.
  • A valley is where two sections of roof meet and connect on the downward slope.

Raleigh New Home Cost | Roof Pitch Explained

Pitch lines can also make a huge difference in the way your new home is viewed. “Box homes” that have virtually no intricate roof lines or pitch emphasize the ability to offer more floor space. But your new home builder or designer can show you how to make the best of both.

How Much Does it Cost to Build a New Custom Home in Raleigh, NC?

Your custom home builder can show you how a style with a mid-level pitch and several gables and valleys can add a lot of sophistication, but still be at the mid to lower end of the cost spectrum.

Cost depends on size, amenities, and other less known aspects, including the condition of your lot and the requirements of your development. For a building cost estimate, click here or call 919-278-8070.

Types of ceilings: Photos of Ceiling Styles

Posted by Penny Hull on Thu, May 30, 2013 @ 09:05 AM

Types of ceilings

Guide to most popular ceiling styles

The most requested ceiling styles in new homes for North Carolina homebuyers are trending toward coffered, trey, barrel vault, and beam features. Here's a glimpse of their appeal, to help you choose your style.

Coffered Ceilings

Types of ceilings: Guide to most popular ceiling styles

What makes a coffered ceiling great?

A coffered ceiling is a specialty ceiling treatment, which divides a ceiling into a grid of recessed panels accented by dropped beams, usually in the form of multiple squares or rectangles.

Each of the beamed sections is then finished with a variety of interior trim and moulding options. Stained coffered ceilings are firmly in the luxury price point, while painted approaches can create a very different effect with less investment.

Recessed can lighting is especially effective with a coffered ceiling, and provides soft, reflective light throughout the room.

Beam Ceilings

Types of ceilings: Guide to most popular ceiling styles

What is so appealing about a beam ceiling?

Beam Ceilings | Wood Beam Ceiling

A beam ceiling is a specialty ceiling treatment that's increasing in popularity.

While beams have been more traditional incorporated into a more rustic décor, they are increasingly evident in eclectic home designs that combine styles, such as contemporary-mountain.

Beams placed in a vaulted ceiling can create interesting depth and contrast.

Beams can be finished using a variety of hardwood or interior trim and moulding options.

Beams can either be load bearing (incorporated into the actual structure of the home) or lighter weight faux beams that are designed for visual impact.

 

 

 

More common ceiling styles

What should be expected in a Conventional Ceiling?Types of ceilings: Guide to popular ceiling styles in NC new homes

Usually 8 feet high, conventional ceilings may be either flat (look just like the walls) or textured, most often called "popcorn" (sprayed with particles that look like painted popcorn kernels.) 

A "smooth ceiling" is flat.  If your contract doesn't mention smooth ceilings, ask your builder what kind of ceilings come standard in your new home.  

In a custom home, the first floor ceilings are often extended to 9 feet in height.

If your new home builder doesn't offer 9 feet as a standard first floor ceiling height, expect to pay $3,000-$9,000 to increase the height, depending on the size of the home.

Why should you consider a Cathedral Ceiling or Vaulted Ceiling?

Types of ceilings: Guide to popular ceiling styles in NC new homes

A cathedral ceiling provides a high sloping line up to the top of the house. A vaulted ceiling extends a room upward. Both provide a spacious feeling and make rooms feel larger.

While vaulted ceilings are generally found in first floor living or family rooms, dining rooms, master bedrooms, and master baths with a vault are becoming more popular in new homes. See one example in the photo to the left - taken from a version of the Carwile. This formal breakfast room incorporates a vaulted ceiling.

Main floor master suite homes also are more likely to have vaulted ceilings, as the second floor is generally smaller, which means that more first floor rooms are likely to have a roof directly over them instead of another room.

 

 

 

Where does a Tray Ceiling create the most impact?

Types of ceilings: Guide to popular ceiling styles in NC new homesA tray ceiling (also called trey ceiling) is an artistic element added to select ceilings to give them personality and a unique attribute.

Trey ceilings start horizontally at the wall intersection and then are built upwards in a cut out resembling a tray.  The cut can be vertical or angled, and the tray itself can be 6 inches to a foot or more deep.  Sometimes there are a series of steps for an even more dramatic effect.

Trey ceilings can be even more impressive when paint is used to accentuate the ceiling and vertical steps, as shown in the photo to the right.

A trey ceiling can either be "dropped" or "raised" depending on what is above the room, and what the ceiling height is.

Decorative mouldings or lights may also be incorporated. 

Types of ceilings: Guide to popular ceiling styles in NC new homesTrey ceilings are most common in dining rooms and/or master bedrooms. 

Trey ceilings are usually an upgrade in production homes, but top builders may include them as a standard feature in custom homes. For example, Stanton Homes includes a variety of trey ceilings in every home they build - with the homeowner choosing their location where possible.  

As an upgrade, the cost from most home builders is generally around $1,000 for a simple cut out trey ceiling with no crown molding, and no variation in paint color. 

If the base plan for your new home doesn't include a trey ceiling, and you pay to upgrade, make sure to ask what kind of trey ceiling you'll be getting.  Will there be one step or two?  Basic box, or angles?  Custom crown moulding in the trey?  Custom color treatment?  Not all NC custom home builders will work with you to custom design a trey ceiling - make sure to ask what is included. 

What's so special about a Barrel Vault Ceiling?

Types of ceilings: Guide to popular ceiling styles in NC new homesA barrel vault ceiling, also known as a tunnel vault or wagon vault, is not commonly seen in most homes, but can be a unique architectural feature in custom designs such as Stanton Homes, where this artistic element comes standard depending on the home's design.

The photo to the right - taken from a version of the Bostwick - shows a two story foyer with barrel vault ceiling.  The arched windows carry out the theme.  The iron balusters and oak handrail give a nice contrast to the rounded lines.

There is a built-in plant shelf above the foyer, which add to the opportunity for personal home accents.

 

 

What's Included in my new Custom Home?

Before you buy, find out what will be included in the home you purchase. Models can be deceptive, as they are often loaded with upgrades that can change their look dramatically.  Ask very specific questions, and be sure your custom home estimate includes a very specific set of specifications.  

If you're a do-it-yourself kind of person, you may be able to add more trimmings to your home later, but keep in mind that it will be nearly impossible to add a trey ceiling, barrel vault ceiling, or increase a room's height after framing has been completed.

Each of the ceilings pictured in this blog has been created by Stanton Homes.  We take pride in crafting a unique combination of ceiling treatments in every home we build - including dozens of styles of trey ceilings.

Kitchen Color Design Tips | Ask Andrea

Posted by Penny Hull on Tue, Feb 28, 2012 @ 08:02 AM

Kitchen Design Help

Kitchen Color Design Tips 

 

We were recently asked this interior design question, through "Ask Andrea":

I have cream colored painted kitchen cabinets, dark blue corian counter tops (Yuck), Yellow painted walls (not too dark or bright) and ugly blue tile floors. What is a good color for tile backsplash on the walls?

 

And here's what Stanton Homes' on staff interior design expert Andrea has to say:


"Thank you for your very "colorful" description of your colorful kitchen--it was rather entertaining to read!

I focus on design tips for new homes, but this is an interesting question and quite a challenge. 

I understand that you were wanting suggestions for a back splash tile that would pull together cream painted cabinets, "yucky" dark blue Corian countertops that you don't seem to like, yellow painted walls, and some apparently ugly blue tiled floor. Wow!

Someone at one point obviously liked this combination but it is quite simply dated for today's styles.

You didn't ask about changing floors so I am going to assume that the option of doing that is out of your budget at the moment--no problem--we all deal with budget constraints everyday and yet we would like to come home to pleasing surroundings. I am going to throw quite a few suggestions your way aside from getting to the back splash.


First of all, when the weather is nice, I think you need to give strong consideration to painting your blue tiled floors. What? Yes, I said paint your tiled floors. Please go to this link and follow her step by step instructions--one of the most concise set of instructions for painted tiled floors that I have ever read. http://www.curbly.com/users/modhomeecteacher/posts/6956-yes-you-can-paint-a-ceramic-tile-floor


 - Consider painting the tile floors white

 - While your in the mood to paint, go ahead and apply a coat of warm white to your cabinets

 - Then, paint your walls in a medium khaki shade

 - Now add a white subway tile back splash and some updated 6" wide brushed nickel bow handles to your cabinets.

 

At this point your kitchen has now been neutralized to a combination of khaki, white, and navy--a classic combination yes,  but compared to the old colors, this should give you a much more clean-lined and modern feel.

This Stanton Home custom kitchen pictured below is an example of a classic color combination:

Custom Home Kitchen Design Tips

 

 - White subway tile back splash

 - Khaki walls

 - Absolute black granite

 - Painted white maple cabinets

 

 

 

With these kitchen design tips, your dark blue counter-tops are still there but we are complimenting them now. To keep the clean lines going, be very very choosy about what stays on your counter.

With everything spruced up I would suggest going through your cabinets and clearing away un-used items so that you can make room for removing clutter from your counter.

Once you have completed this you need to look for a large dark blue glass bowl. Fill it with lemons or Granny Smith apples and you're done! You didn't replace floors or counter-tops but everything should look completely updated anyway.

Custom Home Kitchen Design Tips


The thing you want to remember is that although it may not seem as exciting to create neutral back-drops, time and time again we have seen how well this works for our customers at Stanton Homes.

Although every one of our homes is custom-built home, we do try to help guide the decision-making process so that you do not end up in five years feeling like you have 'yucky" counter-tops and "ugly" floors!

Leave the funky color selections for things like cabinet hardware and light fixtures since they are the items that should be providing a little accent to the room and they are the items that you will find easiest and least expensive to have to change down the road.


I hope you will find these suggestions helpful. Good luck with your kitchen!"

Have a kitchen or interior design trend question for your new home?  Ask Andrea, and she'll let you know all the latest in custom home and design/build trends!   Andrea works closely with each Stanton Homes client to help design homes that fit every lifestyle and taste.
