Square Footage


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to calculate the square footage of the house I'm creating and I was under the impression it would be calculated automatically. Where do I find that number or, if it isn't automatic, is there an easy way to find it other than going from room to room?

It's normally automatic, unless a setting is changed.


View Defaults>Plan and look at the bottom of the dialog.


Running a Plan Check will usually bring it back.

I have it selected and it's showing square footage for the individual rooms but is there somewhere I can find the sum for the entire house?

      I need to calculate room square footages to give to our supplier to order flooring. I noticed when room areas are displayed along with the room labels, it is not calculated to the interior of the walls. Walls seem to be included, and some rooms seem to be different than others on how the calculation is done. Is there a way to adjust how these room calculations are done? Or do you have other advice on how to get this information for flooring square footages? The only options I have come up with so far are drawing a bunch of polylines in all the rooms or doing the math with the dimensions, and I was hoping for something easier. 
      Thank you
