I am going to post this here and hope that Jerald Hayes does not see this. He hates the square foot approach to estimating. I used to read and know of some sort of rough estimating formula that you used to get how many square feet of wall space you had. Seems like there was some sort of formula that square feet of floor was multiplied by 3.5 or some number to get an idea of how much wall space there was. And it was 3.75 if you had walls over 8 but less than 10.

Anyone know what I am talking about? Would use it to get a quick idea of what amount of area and paint is needed for the occasional quick guestimate.
