Square Footage?

I have been researching this and cannot find a dang thing! What is the square footage of a short bus like this?

Thanks!

Don't know for sure, but I'd guess 80... My bus is around 160 sq ft of usable floor space behind the driver seat/dog house...

Re: Square Footage?

width (measured in ft) X length = square feet....

sample 7 ft 6 inches X 20 ft 4 inches = 155.04 sq. ft.

FYI

I don't think the 4 window short buses are 20 ft long. If I had a shortie handy, I'd do the measurements myself, but I don't! Lol.

80 sq ft definitely sounds more like it. Anyone who has an accurate square footage of their shortie, and of the usuable floor space, I'd still love more input. Thanks!

Re: Square Footage?

I have a similar one and it is 11' feet from behind drivers seat to back door by 7'-6" wide.
So, 82.5 sq ft.

Re: Square Footage?

Generally figure about 2.5 feet per window which would be about 10 feet of floor space behind the driver's seat. Most busses are 7.5 feet wide inside so that gives you about 75 square feet.

Re: Square Footage?

At first, I didn't respond because I thought you were either lazy or dumb. I didn't realize that the green bus wasn't yours.

If it was my bus you wouldn't be able to get me out of the damn thing! In all fairness, I was fairly vague. I got the image from http://tinyhouselistings.com/short-bus-tiny-house/, but the owner that had the bus (it's since been sold) didn't have a proper toilet/shower. I was wanting an actual figure to see what I'd be working with if I went the 4 window shortie route.
