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?

In General Plan Defaults there is a setting for "Living Area Labels"

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?

Also just fyi it is oob set on the "Room Label" layer so that would need to be on.  It will show up at the bottom of your plan somewhere on the exterior of the house.
