Barrel 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:
- drywall application
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 photo below is the elliptical archway that separates the grand dining room from the great room.

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.
So there you have it. Two distinctly different types of barrel vaulted ceilings, and an elliptical archway, gracing this gorgeous Victorian style home.

I started as a home-stalker… visiting brand new homes under construction in the neighborhoods near my house. That inspired me to write about home building and home renovation projects — chronicling homes during different phases of construction from a consumer's point-of-view. Basically, the tips you'll find in my articles are a collection of checklists for what I think should (and should not) go into building or remodeling a quality home.
