We purchased a home on a 40 foot lot from GGH and it comes with 9 foot ceilings on the first floor. Is the price that they quoted you for the entire house or just the first floor?

yeah, we were told over $9K just for the first floor!!! :shock: they're nice, but i think we'll pass.

i don't think you can get them on the 2nd floor.

Just the main floor.

We find it a bit expensive though...

Craig & Sophie,

We were only quoted for about $5400.00 for our first floor on our pre-construction form to upgrade to 9 ft ceilings, are you sure that was your quote?

yeah its hefty, but personally the 9ft ceiling makes the place (kitchen, family room area) feel alot more spacious...something you can never do afterwards! Especially since you'll spend alot of time in that area of the house.

It s a big bullet to bite but I think its one of those things that you'll say to yourself afterwards "maybe I should of did the upgrade"...especially after seeing a friends place in the same development.

Another consideration is for resale. The guy down the street with the exact same layout but with the 9ft ceiling will get the obvious consideration, with all else being equal.

Just my $0.02 as each is to their own.

good luck

Our house also comes with 9ft ceilings on the main floor, but I do agree with GT re difficulty doing it afterwards.

well, that's what the rep told us at the Decor center... i guess we'll have to wait and see what our structural package says to be sure... $5K sounds a bit more "reasonable", although we still think it's a scam since it doesn't cost the builder any less to do 8' instead of 9'... but i guess that's how they do so well when selling houses.

We were their last weekend for about 2 hours (so much fun).
We'll probably go 1 more time near the end of April just to confirm our picks as our design consultant told us to expect to come in at the beginning of May.

Good Luck!
