Q How can I be sure that my new house has the square footage indicated on the approved drawing?M. Dodd
A Measure the outside walls at the perimeter of the house. Plot them on a graph paper to scale. Multiply the length times the width. That’s the square footage if the house is a perfect rectangle. If the house is not a perfect rectangle, you’ll need to calculate the square footage of the innermost rectangular area you can draw, and then calculate the square footage of each rectangle outside of the biggest rectangle you can draw. Add them up and that’s the approximate square footage.
