Determining SQ Ft of my home???
Seems to be lots of opinions about what exactly constitutes actual sq/ft. IMO, it is the actual living areas of the home and stated as such, plus garage and basement, unless the basement is an actual living area. For example, 1250 sq/ft + 2 car garage and full basement would mean just what is implied...the basement is not living area. 2500 sq/ft on 2 levels with 2 car garage would imply a finished basement.
I have seen people actually measure each room to determine actual living space, but that is rarely done...
