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.”
