Questions for Drawing 1

1. Why do you think that so much space was dedicated to the children's room on both suggested floor plans?

2. What do you think the rectangles on the floor plans represent? Where do you think the books were housed?

3. Compare Plan B and Plan C. What differences, if any, are there between the two plans? Why do you think the options are so similar?

* The drawing on this screen has a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain a high quality version of Drawing 1, but be aware that the file will take as much as 30 seconds to load with a 28.8K modem.
