Living area vs Built area

Recommended Posts

I think there is confusion about the Living area.

The Living area is the Built area minus the areas of all the walls.

When we create a CA plan it automatically shows us the living area which is actually the built area.

I have been doing this a long time and every builder I work with wants the living area. which is the outside of the framing minus the garage and perhaps the open to below areas. Perhaps they are asking for the "wrong" info, but I have been giving them this info since the early 90's and you are the first to make such a distinction.

In my country, taxes are paid on the built area, not on the living area.

So there are two different things.

It would be very helpful if the CA would display both areas.
