20 x 15 = 300 square feet

If your wanting the entire square footage you can measure the width and length of your home from the outside. If your wanting to know the square footage of the heated space, measure each room width and length that have air ducts. Multiply the width and length measurements.

A square footage is a measure of are in 2-dimensional space. However, the fact that there are three measures given suggests a 3-dimensional object.

The square footage of a home is determined by adding the square foot measurements of all the rooms including closets, if by wasted space you mean inside the walls then no, and not the garage either unless it has been converted into living space. Tax Assessors look at the following when estimating a home's square footage: Above grade (meaning anything that is above the ground), heated space that is livable. The measurements are taken from the outside of the house. Any second floor rooms that have pitched ceilings will be measured as 3/4 or 1/2 of the square footage. Any attic space is not considered livable, so are not included in the main square footage calculations. Rooms that are not heated (such as a summer porch) but have utility are taxed at a lower rate. The second you heat the room it becomes part of the main house. Finished, heated basements are also calculated as living areas, but discounted and not part of the main houses square footage because it's below grade.

The square footage of a space is equal to L x W, with L=length, and W=width. You have 3 feet x 3 feet. 3'=L and 3'=W. So LxW= 3'x3' which is 9 square feet. It is in square feet because it is an area and not a distance. (9ft2)

No. The building footprint is the area it occupies within a lot or space. That building can be multiple stories ether above or underground. The space within the building footprint/ multiple stories can be considered the square footage.

In short "YES" Real estate appraisers normally determine the square footage of a home by measuring the exterior of the building. If a home has two floors, the appraiser may just calculate the living space as being twice the size of the ground floor's dimensions. If you have a two-story home with vaulted ceilings, you actually have less usable square footage than someone with an identically sized home that does not have vaulted ceilings. Nevertheless, appraisers typically do not deduct the square footage you sacrificed when you chose to install vaulted ceilings. This means that in terms of usable square footage, homes with vaulted ceilings normally cost more than homes without vaulted ceilings.
