What criteria is used to calculate "Living Space"?I had a garage w/loft built onto my existing home. An appraiser told me the loft (which I have turned into a game room - OK, it's my Man-Cave) could not be considered "living space and therefore could not be calculated into the overall value of the home. His reasoning was that all four (4) walls had to be a minimum 4ft high and currently one wall is only 2ft. Is this true and what can I do to convert it into "living space" to add value to my home?December 28 2011 - Madison00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
