Baton Rouge FHA Appraiser Explains ANSI Standards 5′ Sloping Wall Height Rule

https://www.appraisersinbatonrouge.com/ – Baton Rouge FHA Appraiser Explains ANSI Standards 5′ Sloping Wall Height Rule

 

Based on my experience, the ANSI 5′ Slanted Wall Height Rule is one of the most misunderstood or ignored rules for measuring homes. I recently took the time to draw a diagram illustrating the rule based on ANSI Standards, Z765-1996, Page 2, which states,

“ To be included in finished square footage calculations, finished areas must have a ceiling height of at least 7 feet except: under beams, ducts, and other obstructions where the height may be 6 feet 4 inches; under stairs where there is no specified height requirement; or where the ceiling is sloped. If a room’s ceiling is sloped, at least one-half of the finished square footage in that room must have a vertical ceiling height of at least 7 feet; no portion of the finished area that has a height of less than 5 feet may be included in finished square footage.”

See the Diagram and Video Below:
