        OVERALL DWELLING DIMENSIONS

                        Area (m2)   Average Room   Dimensions refer to the inner surfaces of the
                                      Height (m)   elements bounding the dwelling. Thus floor
                                                   dimensions are obtained by measuring
                                                   between the inner surfaces of the perimeter
Ground Floor                                       walls. This measurement should include all
                                                   internal walls and built-in cupboards that are
                                                   accessible from the occupied area of the
First Floor                                        dwelling. It should include porches and
                                                   conservatories where they are heated and
                                                   form part of the habitable space. It should,
Second Floor                                       however, exclude porches and

                                                   Storey height is the total height between the
