Math Problem:
You need to build a house using imperial measurements (feet and inches). You have a 40 ft X 100 ft infill (empty) lot to build your house.

Things to consider:


You must have 5 ft side yards
house must be placed in the middle of the remaining yard

The length and width of the house must be numbers that are divisible by four

There must be at least one window and one door for the front view and back view of the house

There must be at least two windows on the side view.

Use the ideas you have learned about sustainability

Take into account the research you have done on homes in your particular area.

After you determine the dimensions of your house, you will be required to make scale drawings of the front view, back view, and side view of the house.

You will also be required to make a 3-dimensional model.

Base Plan
Draw to scale where your house will be situated on the lot. Remember that there must be 5 foot side yards. Label the dimensions of the house with the real life size. You will need to use a ruler!

Front View
– use the area below to draw to scale a detailed front view of your house. All measurements need to be a labeled with the real life size. For example, the length and width of the windows and doors need to be clearly labeled on your diagram. Use a ruler!

Back View
– use the area below to draw to scale a detailed back view of your house. All measurements need to be a labeled with the real life size. For example, the length and width of the windows and doors need to be clearly labeled on your diagram. Use a ruler!

Side View
– use the area below to draw to scale a detailed side view of your house. All measurements need to be a labeled with the real life size. Use a ruler!
