In the United States, most typical residential homes are a little over 8 feet per story. The roof line will add another 6 to 8 feet, depending on the pitch of the roof. Standard building codes say that a room must have 7 and a half feet minimum ceiling height. So a ranch style home tends to be 16-20 feet to the peak of the roof. But the elevation of the property, the style and the layout can vary greatly and give you a full range of heights. If you figure five feet for an average height of the pitched roof, and about 8 feet for the interior walls that makes a little over 13 feet plus whatever foundation you have under the house.
