Bedrooms, Occupancy Limits and Square Footage

Recently we have received calls with questions about the definition of a bedroom, e.g., if it has to have a closet, door or even 4 walls.  One consideration for the bedroom question is what the sewer or septic occupancy will allow.  City/county sewer and private septic systems have limits on occupancy based on what the system has been designed to handle, and you cannot advertise more bedrooms than the occupancy limit.  Similarly there have been calls about square footage, and what counts and what does not for valuation purposes.  See this Bulletin article for details on the difference between NCREC Residential Square Footage Guidelines vs. ANSI Standard to help answer this question.
