Doing an FHA appraisal on a 1950's cape COD where the two bedrooms on the second floor are finished but heat is drawn from the first floor. This is common in capes of this age. Since it is been some time since I appraised something like this, I checked the 4000.1 and couldn't find anything directly addressing this except to note that the "heating system must adequately heat the dwelling to 50 degrees". This temp is fine for the second floor. Any thoughts? I have two bedrooms on first floor so if I need to include in GLA but not call them bedrooms I can.
