Dream House Project

Due Monday October 3, 2011

*This assignment will count as homework #14 and will also be graded as a project.

On a piece of graph paper, you are going to be creating the floor plan for your dream house.  In your dream house you must include, a bedroom, bathroom, living room, and kitchen.  You must also include three additional rooms of your choice. Include some hallways in your house as well to connect some of the rooms.

In order to receive a four on this project you must have the following:

• A minimum of 7 rooms, including the bedroom, bathroom, living room, and kitchen. If you exceed the 7 rooms, it can only help your grade.
• Each room must be labeled with the name of the room.
• Each room must include the dimensions around each side, do not forget the units.
•  Each room must have the perimeter labeled inside the room showing P=___
• Be as creative as possible and color this project in using crayons/colored pencils.
• REMEMBER the scale. You can use 1 box = 1 foot or you can make the units equal more.  You have to include this key at the top of your graph paper so that I know the scale that you used.
• Make sure your dimensions make sense, for example the bathroom’s perimeter and dimensions should not be bigger than the master bedroom, etc.
