  • Measurements are taken from the outside surface of the exterior walls for detached houses . Townhouses are measured from the centre line of the party walls and the outside surface of exterior walls.
    • Semi-detached and end units of townhouses are measured from the outside surface of exterior walls and the centre line of party walls
  • Prior to taking any measurements of the structure, first prepare a rough outline sketch or layout of the perimeter of the building. Indicating all dimensions of this sketch will serve as a check when comparing the front width dimension to the rear width and similarly, when comparing the two length dimensions.
    • Living area includes the square area of all utility rooms, storage areas and cupboards, located on the same level(s) as the main living area(s)
  • The following should not be considered or included as being part of the living area of residential buildings:
    • porches

    • closed-in patios
    • screened-in decks
    • garages
    • carports
