Measuring interiors and exteriors that are equally proportioned:
Measure the length of the surface and the width of the surface and
multiply those two numbers the same way as you would in calculating
the area inside a square or rectangle.
Example  You want to cover 2
of 4 walls inside your home. Two of the walls measure 10 ft high
and 20 ft' wide. And the other two walls are 10 ft high and 30 ft
wide. You want to cover one wall of each. Answer:
10 X 20 = 200 sq ft 10 ft X 30 ft = 300 sq ft
Measuring a wall that varies in height from the beginning to
the end: Simply measure the length of the wall and the height
of the wall half the distance of the length and multiply the length
times the half way point of the height of the wall to get the total
square footage of the area.
Example  You have a wall that
is 20 ft high at one end but is 11 ft high at the other end. The
wall length 20 ft. Answer: Median of 15.5
ft high X 20 ft long = 310 sq ft
Measuring a gable: Measure the height of the gable and half
the width of the gable. Multiply those two numbers to determine
the total square footage of the gable.
Example  You have gable that
is 12 ft high and 12 ft wide at the base. Answer:
One half width of gable = 6 ft X 12 ft = 72 sq ft
Measuring columns: Measure the circumference of the column
and multiple that number times the height of the column to determine
the square footage of the column.
Example You have 2 columns
that are 14 ft high and both have a circumference of 30 inches Answer:
Multiply the circufrance times the height 2.5 ft X 3 ft = 7.5 sq
ft
