8ft vs 9ft ceilings

3 years ago

we are in the midst of a major renovation but trying to keep within budget. currently the house is a single story 1500sqft and we will be adding a second story and increasing the total square footage to aver 3300sqft.

I wanted an opinion on raising the first floor to 9ft ceilings. we are going for a very open floorplan on the first floor but is the added cost significant to make us consider not raising the extra foot. would it be simpler to reinforce the existing first floor 8ft ceiling or build upon that or since the second floor is going to be built the 9ft ceiling is a no brainer.?? thoughts?
