Two Distinctive Barrel Vaulted Ceilings

barrel_vault_ceiling_dining_room1.JPGBarrel vaulted ceilings are yet another ceiling style that typical builders don’t attempt to incorporate into traditional homes.

Custom homes are where you’ll typically find them and I’ve got a couple of examples of barrel vault ceilings on tap… ready to show you right here and now.

If you have a keen interest in different ceiling styles for homes, stay tuned.

I’ll be putting up a few posts over the next couple of weeks showcasing varying styles from a couple of different homes but mostly from one home in particular that was custom built to mimic classic Victorian residential architecture.

It’s a beauty! An instant classic that attracts a lot of attention from passersby driving on Route 120 near downtown Marietta, GA.

The following 4 photos shows the elliptical-style of barrel vaulted ceiling during several different phases of construction:

  • framing
  • drywall application
  • molding
  • painting

The barrel vault covers the short hallway linking the foyer to the grand dining room. That’s probably about as high profile of a place in this home as it’s going to get.

The next set of photos gives you a view of what you would see if you came in from the garage and into the mud room. That’s right, people! A small, radius-style of barrel vaulted ceiling rises above the mudroom. It also serves as a quick passageway to the back porch and outdoor entertaining area.

Writing a home building blog that chronicles new homes during different phases of construction from a consumers' point-of-view is rather unique and loads of fun. Basically, my tips are a collection of checklists for what I think should (and should not) go into building a quality home. So let's have fun seeing what's new in the housing market these days!
