raising ceiling height during remodel


Hi all,
I have a 50's ranch with cinderblock walls and 8' ceiling height. We are adding a 2nd story and I am wondering what the general cost of raising the first floor ceiling height to 9' or so would be.
The entire first floor will be furred out to add insulation and I assume the plaster ceiling will be torn out whether or not we raise the height, so is there reason not to do it anyway?
cheers.

I know cost is difficult to determine - I am actually more interested in what work is involved in the process so that I can estimate the cost.
Thanks.
