How much square feet of space did your furniture use? How much space is left in the room?


How much did it cost to furnish your living room?


Home Depot is having a sale on their TrafficMaster carpet at $1.25 per square foot. You will also have to buy a roll of carpet padding. The roll of padding is 540 in. x 72 in. and sells for $99.00.


Will one roll be enough? Prove whether or not you only need one roll or 2.


How much did it cost to carpet your 13 ft. x 17 ft. living room?


Use any materials you would like to create the list of furniture in 2D (arial view). Arrange the furniture in the room, as you see fit and glue it in place.


CHALLENGE: Feel free to research the average height of the furniture above and create it in 3D using materials of your choosing.

Use the scale 1in =1mm

REMEMBER the dimensions of your room were in feet, so there may be extra work to convert it to centimeters.
