    Yep, I have done that & found that in reality many projects are less by atleast 1"-1.5" as the builder say it is wall to wall (brick to brick) & not plaster to plaster, the difference is more if there is POP/Gypsum finish.

  • Puser,
    There are two things in area calcualtion :
    One, as told by realacres, the actual measurement is always lesser by 1" or more compared to figures shown on paper.
    Second, i think that was ur question, u can convert feet into inches and calculate the total area(10'6" * 11' = 126 inches*132 inches). I calculated some of the project areas and found it same as mentioned on the papers.

    Actually, the sizes given in the brochures or floor plans contain refer to rooms, toilets, baclonies and in some cases lofts. the sizes of other areas witin the flat is sometimes given but mostly not. Like passageways within the unit or a small entrance lobby etc. So it is sometimes difficult to calculate the area.

  • Buy a 10 metre tape at the local hardware store, and go to the sample flat. Measure all rooms, passages, bathrooms, everything (excluding terrace) yourself. Ignore the builder, his salesman, other curious onlookers.

    Calculate carpet area according to these measurements. This is the area you are going to get for living.

    If the sample flat is not what is actually being sold, dont consider that project. Dont believe the salesman saying the sample flat is identical to actual flat, unless the sample flat is inside the buildings being constructed.

    If the sample flat is a temporarily constructed shed, the builder will build a slightly larger sample flat and then demolish the shed. But if the flat is within a building of the project, builder wont demolish the RCC.

    Good point. such temporary sample flats have high celling and so looks big and spacious than actual one.
