A single-story home 20' wide x 50' long, for example, equals 1000 square feet. A 1000-square-foot home is not a large one. The properties we work on generally range in size from 1800 to 2400 square feet. That is the total amount of floor space. Some have additional room or storage outside the house, but not included in the square footage. Such as a garage or shed. This would be an addition that might change the overall feel of the property but not its actual size.

The number of rooms determines how many housing units can fit on the lot. If there are three bedrooms, then there can be three separate households living in the house. If there are two bedrooms, then only two people can live there at a time. If there is only one bedroom, then it can be used by **more than one person** if they sleep in **different parts** of the room.

Some houses have more than one story. The upstairs area is called the first floor, the second floor, and so on. The upper part of a house with multiple stories is usually referred to as a "Upper Level". The basement is also considered part of the house. It is below ground level but has its own door which leads out to the property. There may be storage down there too! Basements are very common in cold climates because they provide a place to store food away from pests such as mice and insects.

To calculate **the square footage** of a home or other building, multiply the external length by the width of each floor area. Then add up all the floor areas.

There are approximately 30 square feet of floor space inside **most homes**. This includes spaces such as hallways, staircases, and bathrooms. Some rooms such as bedrooms are larger than others, but on average they use about 70 percent of the total floor space. A property with **100 square feet** of living space would be considered small. Spaces of **this size** are useful for a single family residence or small apartment.

Most houses today are bigger than this because people want more room. If you need more space, consider an architectual style that allows for expansion, such as barns, bi-levels, and low-rise apartments. These types of buildings can be created easily into larger units if necessary in the future. Avoid traditional mansions which are usually only suitable for one family due to their large sizes.

Large houses may appear attractive to some people, but they often cost much more to build and maintain. Also, they tend to use up much of your budget on storage and security systems needed to protect expensive items inside. Smaller houses are easier to manage and less expensive to live in.

Home designs ranging from 1000 to 1100 square feet normally contain one to two stories, two to three bedrooms, and at least one-and-a-half bathrooms.... A tiny house in the 1000 to 1100 square foot range just makes sense for budget-conscious homeowners. They're perfect for one person who doesn't need a lot of room but wants to have their own space.

The smallest house that I could find on **Google Maps** was 1250 square feet. It's an estate home in Woodridge, Illinois. It has five bedrooms and almost nine bathrooms! That's a lot of room.

The largest house that I could find on Google Maps had about 2000 square feet. It's a mansion in **Palm Beach**, Florida. It has **six bedrooms** and six baths!

In conclusion, one thousand square feet can be used to accommodate one to four people. There are homes with **less than 1000 square feet** and others with more than 2000 square feet.

A 1000 square foot structure is any quantity multiplied by **any number** that equals 1000. For example, if your structure is 50 feet long and 20 feet wide, multiply the length (50) by the width (20) to get your floor area squared, or 1000 square feet. A small closet could be 1,000 square feet, while a garage might be 2,000-4,000 square feet.

The volume of a room is also called the cubic content of the room. Volume can be calculated by multiplying the length of one wall times the height of the wall times the depth of the wall, then adding these numbers together. In this case, the volume of a room is found by multiplying 497 x 40 x 8 = 995,520 cubic inches (cm3).

The total surface area of a room is called its area. Area can be calculated by multiplying the length of one side of a room times its height. In this case, the area of the room is 497 x 80 = 39,960 square inches (in2).

A standard office has **a floor space** of about 5000 square feet. Multiply 5000 by.5 to find that it takes 10,000 square inches of floor space to cover one square foot of flooring. This means that there are 10,000/sq. Ft. of floor space in an office building.
