would anyone know a website or book that can provide me with the right guidlines of measuring residential floor space?
The book is called the Australian Standard Method of Measurement published by the AIQS, alternatives would be available from the Property Council of Australia.
The appropriate book would depend upon the reason that you need to measure the floor space? Examples would be NLA, GLA and FSR.
