Is square footage measured from inside or outside of the house?

Answer

According to my contractor determining the square footage of a house depends on what the calculation is being used for. To determine the amount of space the house occupies the square footage is measured on the outside of the home. To determine actual living area the inside of the house is measured.

Use a measuring tape, then apply 3rd grade level multiplication skills. Same way you would find the square footage for ANYTHING.
