间 Jiān

For measuring rooms:

一间屋子 yì jiān wūzi
一间房间 yì jiān fángjiān
‘a room’

我们还有一间空房。 Wǒmen háiyǒu yì jiān kōngfáng.
‘We still have a room available.’

这间房间能看到游泳池吗? Zhè jiān fángjiān néng kàndào yóuyǒngchí ma?
‘Does this room have a pool view?’

我们并不是一整天都和这个人呆在同一间屋子里。 Wǒmen bìng búshì yìzhěngtiān dōu hé zhège rén dāizài tóng yì jiān wūzi lǐ.
‘We're not in the same room with this person all day.’

N.B.

Some times 间 can also be used to measure houses, but 栋 dòng might be better.

乔和佛瑞德在一个村子里帮忙盖一间房子。 Qiáo hé Fúruìdé zài yíge cūnzi lǐ bāngmáng gài yì jiān fángzi.
‘Joe and Fred were helping to build a house in a village.’

有人给他了一间房子。 Yǒu rén gěile tā yì jiān fángzi.
‘Somebody offered him a house.’
