House Model Assessment

Given the following house floor plan, create a scale drawing of the house showing just the rooms and closets.  

Use a scale factor of 1 inch: 12 feet (an industry standard). Print this out from this file an record all relevant computations.

This project requires the construction of a scale model of a Mail Delivery System. In order to complete the model, you must be able to sketch and draw a smaller version of a real situation and then construct the smaller version. The mathematics needed for this project is found in the study of scale factors. Scale factors require attention to units and also can be represented as functions.
