Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Please help. I am trying to explain to someone the size of my home. My Plan says 42 housing squares. Or 390 metres (sqaure) I assume. How do I explain the size to an American in their measurement system. :shock:

A square for measuring house area seems to be unique to Australia, but it is 100 square feet. (We use it here as a unit for roofing.)

Anyway, 42 squares is 4200 ft². You can also get there by multiplying 390 m² x 10.7 ft²/m²,
or certainly many, vbut not all Americans would understand 390 m²

In measuring area, I have learned before that 1 square is converted to 100 square feet, or about 9.3 square meters. Then, if you try to convert 42 square, that is 4200 square feet, or approximately 390.6 square meters. There you go, you already have it!
