Again, Fannie Mae differs because they are considered with the accuracy of an analysis not necessarily the particulars of a property. ANSI also describes such a case when physical access to the structure is not possible due to the nature of the terrain or other obstacles that may preclude direct physical measurement of the exterior in z756 time available.

The method of area calculation is recognized in z65 publications and by various professional boards as the standard for computing and labeling the area of a house.

Thus, an awning without finished ceiling would not be classified as part of total area under roof. Specifically, ANSI divides snsi area of a house into two identified spaces: ANSI actually lists acceptable finishes. Thus, detached buildings such as storage sheds, guest houses, pool houses, etc.

ANSI and Fannie Mae Measuring Standards

This area must be identified separately. To be consistent with ANSI, the finishes must not be those specifically excluded, such as painted concrete, 13 must be similar to the rest of anis house, and must provide for year-round use. Examples of this occur in many houses with exterior accessed storage rooms and garages. It is evident that the treads do not completely fill the well.


Again, how would an appraiser know if a comparable only had 18 feet wide living area on the second floor if they had not inspected the interior of the comparable sale? Also noted, is that the market definition does not indicate a mandatory ceiling height requirement. Misrepresenting such a property would waste the time of clients and agents confused by the misrepresentation.

Square Footage – Method for Calculating: ANSI Z765 2012 Update Process

As a practical application, this means that interior dimensions are often relied upon, with conversion to exterior dimensions for consistency with ANSI. The ceiling height limitations caused by the roof line must be considered to provide an ANSI compliant area calculation.

Thus, the ANSI standard indicates that z7665 a split level, where a portion of the floor is below grade, must be identified as finished or unfinished below grade.

Above- and Below-Grade Finished Areas The above-grade finished square footage of a house is the sum of finished areas on levels that are entirely above grade.


z756 Again, the area under stairs is not deducted from the base level because of ceiling height. Again, this is to provide a consistency in the description of space. The example here is actually a situation very prevalent in the Louisiana market area. Total Area Under Roof: Declaration 2 must be made when the area is based upon plans.


Any level that is partially below grade makes the entire area ineligible for being determined in GLA. Air Force, Net Living Area is: Each is then related to ANSI.

Actually, the initial publication of the ANSI standard identified floor finishes, specifically excluding bare or painted concrete as acceptable finishes. Perimeter Length X Width X 2 — Length X Width of floor opening Fireplaces, Bay Windows and other Protrusions In z75 to be considered part of the finished and unfinished area of a level, the area must have a floor on the same level. Any information inconsistent with the ANSI identification should be adequately explained in the comments.

It’s a community-based project which helps to repair anything.

ANSI acknowledges that it is a common practice to provide a floor opening for stairs that is the same size as the stairs themselves. Declaration 3 must be made when area calculation is based upon estimated dimensions. The next item to understand is ANSI terminology.

The following example is a house with a garage. Further, the definition indicates the area must be contiguous and have finishes.
