I appreciate the effort made to offer two different standards.
I live in a region that distinguishes between finished and unfinished. However, I was unable to use the ANSI standard in BETA because it does not give a total floor area for each floor and the whole building. My clients generally insist on a total for the whole building appearing on the floor plan, and choosing ANSI does not provide this. Please keep in mind realtors and buyers don’t figure out math problems as quickly as we do.
I was able to get around this by choosing “enable finished area reporting”, but now this has been removed.
Is it possible to add a third line to the ANSI standard?
- total exterior area
