I'm still a little confused and need clarification. Originally, I had an 1800 sq ft home. Now that I put on the 600 ft addition, I have a 2400 sq ft home. Although the kids used the whole 1800 sq ft at the beginning of the year, at the end of the year, once the addition was put on, the kids no longer have reign over the whole 1800 sq ft part of the home...they only use 1000 sq ft of the original home plus the 600 sq ft exclusive use addition. So, wouldn't my calculations look like this?

600/2400 = 25% exclusive use room
1000/2400 = 41.67% regular use space %
If we assume the time percent is 40%: 40% x 41.67% = 16.67%
16.67% + 25% = 41.67%

If you tell me your original calculation is the way it is supposed to be, I'll go with it. I like your 55% calculation better than my 41.67% calculation :-)

Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it!
