Ceiling Height requirements

All habitable rooms have an acceptable ceiling height of 2.4m.
Kitchens, bathrooms, corridors, laundries, toilets, storerooms, & garages are 2.1m from finished floor levels.
Building inspector’s often find during their pre purchase inspections that when the downstairs areas of a high set home is closed in the ceilings are too low for habitable rooms. This measurement is taken from the finished floor height to the ceiling. In more recent times we have been reporting ceiling heights below the 2400mm to recently renovated or new additions to buildings all too often. It is then classed as a non habitable room.
Ordinance Number 71 created in 1919 and updated in 1922 required a habitable room to be not less than 8 feet (2400) and not less than 9 feet(2700) where the ceiling is not insulated.
